EVSC winter sports events will be streamed live for free

By Sports events

The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation and the Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union are teaming up again to provide free access to live streaming of winter sporting events.

The partnership between the two organizations will allow fans to watch winter sporting events from the five EVSC gyms from the comfort of their own homes.

Last year, the two organizations teamed up to offer the live streaming service amid the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing tens of thousands of unique viewers to access girls ‘and boys’ sporting events, first-year teams at university.

While there are currently no restrictions on participation in sporting events, organizations hope the service will continue to provide an option for those not comfortable with large crowds, as well as those who can’t make it to gyms.

The first live broadcast of the season will take place on Saturday, November 6, when Central hosts Terre Haute North in women’s basketball.

You can find a full schedule of games and connect to live streamed events at ihsaatv.org/evsc.

ES Broadcast selects Telestream PRISM to monitor sporting events

By Sports events

Munich, Germany—ES Broadcast Hire has offices in the UK, Spain, Germany and the US. As the leader in rental of broadcast equipment in Europe, we are particularly focused on the supply of equipment for events and broadcast production. One of our specialties is the support of IP and remote production systems for live events.

When it came to testing signal monitoring equipment and products, we were looking for a single system that was versatile enough to support hybrid SDI or IP workflows for live production, content editing and trust monitoring from SD to 8K in multiple color spaces. Since multiple audio streams also circulate over IP, having comprehensive audio tools was on our wishlist as well.

FRIENDLY INDEPENDENT

Recognizing that operators have varied backgrounds and experiences, we wanted a system that was easy to use and learn, as our customers often hire freelance staff and set up temporary facilities. The ideal system would satisfy multiple use cases and operator positions; the last thing we wanted was to overwhelm an operator with endless menus and features they wouldn’t need.

With that in mind, we preferred a system in which the user interface could be “dressed” to match the job / function on demand.

After taking a close look at the options available with a major customer, we purchased 12 Telestream PRISM waveform monitors after the PRISM platform was requested for use in the IP Broadcast Center for several major sporting events. international over the summer and winter of 2021. Our client used the PRISM Waveform Monitors at several engineering positions and for creative monitoring of editorial signals, including camera shading and color correction, while supporting resolutions up to 8K.

PRISM has proven to be extremely flexible whether the signal path is over ST 2110 or SDI, and has delivered results at all resolutions while ensuring that production teams maximize the potential of Wide Color Gamut (WCG) formats. A vital part of the underlying IP infrastructure, PRISM monitors also allowed engineers to accurately time signals and quickly and easily identify any issues with the timing of the PTP (Precision Time Protocol) signal between positions. , especially in the high-pressure environment of live sports broadcasting.

REMOTE CONFIGURATION

Now that PRISM systems are part of our rental inventory, we are seeing the broader benefit of remote configuration as the systems are often on the road for extended deployments. The ability to simply reconfigure PRISM systems or update them in the field with new functionality addresses a key part of our requirement to provide the latest and cutting edge equipment to our customers.

Without returning the units to base, our staff can reconfigure menus and remote displays to match any use case or even just to meet individual customer preferences. Unlike traditional waveform monitors, when operating in IP mode, PRISM systems can support audio analysis for Dolby E / D / D +, including surround sound displays. Operators can monitor levels, clipping, silence, and even loudness compliance.

In these difficult times, one of the features our customers rely on is the ability to view signals and manage the PRISM system remotely through a simple but secure web interface. As productions continue to work with fewer onsite staff due to pandemic restrictions, these remote capabilities have become invaluable and mean compromises on quality are never made.

We have a long history of working with Tektronix video products and we are pleased to see that product and development has strengthened under the Telestream brand.

Upcoming KC Sporting Events: K-State vs. KU, Kansas City Chiefs

By Sports events

The Kansas State Wildcats and the Kansas Jayhawks meet in another sunflower showdown Saturday at Lawrence.

The Kansas State Wildcats and the Kansas Jayhawks meet in another sunflower showdown Saturday at Lawrence.

The Kansas City area has seen some higher-stakes sunflower showdowns in football, no doubt, but there’s reason to believe this year’s edition could be some of the best in recent memory.

Kansas has shown signs of life under first-year head coach Lance Leipold, and K-State is aiming for a bowl appearance that would extend their long streak of playoff invitations.

It’s also a big week for the Chiefs (when is not it’s the case ? it’s the NFL!), and local high school sports fans will have plenty of opportunities to cheer on outstanding area teams and the student-athletes they love.

Sporty KC? All they do this week is close out the regular season with no less than three games in the space of eight days. And then it’s also for the playoffs for them.

College football buzz

K-State and Chris Klieman picked up an important victory on Oct. 23 in Lubbock, Texas, passing the Red Raiders 25-24 to end an eight-game losing streak in conference.

Kansas led the Oklahoma standings at Lawrence the same afternoon before losing 35-23. The Jayhawks, led by freshman coach Lance Leipold, baffled the Sooners – they led OR, for real – before order was restored to the Big 12 universe.

Do we dream to think this year’s Sunflower Showdown is shaping up to be a competitive football game and maybe even the closest final score between these two neighbors since 2018, when KSU won 21-17? May be. After all, the Cats have dominated KU since a 52-21 Kansas win over Lawrence in 2008.

Not to mention Mizzou, here. The Tigers also play Saturday, and their task is gargantuan: in Georgia.

It’s a busy week for Sporting KC. And it will get even busier, or more intense, anyway, at the start of the MLS playoffs.

Before we can start thinking about the playoffs, however, there are three more regular season games to play in the week ahead: Sporting KC are in Minnesota today (Sunday, October 31); in Austin on Wednesday; and at home, for the final of the regular season, against Real Salt Lake next Sunday (November 7).

And so the playoffs can begin.

High school sports party

There’s so much going on in high school sports for Kansas City area teams and individual competitors this week. Part of it takes place here in the metro, but much of it takes place elsewhere.

Here’s a look at what’s going on in addition to the myriad of preseason football games that will reduce the field of standings across Missouri and Kansas:

  • Kansas Football Championships: The semi-finals will take place on Friday and the finals on Saturday at the pitches in Olathe, Wichita and Topeka.
  • Missouri Volleyball Championships: The state tournaments are held Thursday through Saturday at the Show Me Center on the Southeast Missouri state campus in Cape Girardeau; the finals are Friday and Saturday.
  • The Missouri cross: The State Championships are held Friday and Saturday at the Gans Creek Course in Columbia.

Riders Republic review: A renaissance for extreme sports games

By Sports games

Riders Republic: Specifications

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Amazon Luna, Stadia, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S
Price: $ 60
Release date: 28 October 2021
Kind: Sports action / simulation

Riders Republic is a new entry in the extreme sports genre of video games. Once a dominant force in the gaming landscape, the genre has been largely overlooked over the past decade as a glut of online shooters and open-world action games flooded the market.

In that regard, Riders Republic looks like a welcome throwback. This is the type of game one would have expected to see on PS2. However, it contains more than enough modern gaming sensibilities to play like a current generation title.

The game is a spiritual sequel to Ubisoft’s 2016 snowboarding title Steep, and it takes its predecessor’s formula and works with it. Riders Republic adds more than extra things to do, but a welcome level of customization that’s almost unmatched in the genre.

There are a few flaws, most of which only become apparent as you play, but even when the grind borders on the tedious Riders Republic continues to woo you as it nails the core fundamentals. Read on for our full Riders Republic review.

Riders Republic Review: Gameplay

Variety is the name of the game in Riders Republic. While most games in the genre focus on a single extreme sport, Riders Republic gives you the option of mountain biking, snowboarding, skis, wingsuits, and even rocket-powered jetpacks.

Bikes are definitely the most fun option available to you. There is something to hawk furiously down a dusty track picking up enough speed to overtake a car that never gets old. The default controls are also remarkably easy to pick up, within minutes you’ll be drifting through tight turns and performing double backflips.

The use of a snowboard or a pair of skis is naturally similar. These transport methods are mainly useful when you want to perform over the top tricks and grinds. Carving in powder snow is fun, but you don’t feel as vulnerable traveling at breakneck speeds as you do on a bicycle frame, which makes snow sports a lot less exciting.

Wingsuits ignore the laws of physics for the sake of fun. By holding down a button, you can essentially stop and restart your swing. This makes wingsuits extremely arcaded and often behaves in annoying and unpredictable ways. Rocket-powered wingsuits don’t have the same problem but are rather boring to control. Boredom is not something you should experience when using a jetpack.

At any time, you can instantly switch to first person mode with the push of a button. While you’ll likely choose to play the majority of Riders Republic in third person, first person is a fun new addition. Hopping a bunny off a cliff on a BMX and rolling down the almost steep slope in first person is extremely exhilarating and might tie your stomach.

Riders Republic deserves credit for customizing their controls. Initially, you choose between two control schemes: racer and trickster. There’s also a preset that mimics Steep’s layout. You can further fine-tune settings such as how much help the game gives you when landing tricks or whether you want to hook onto the grind rails automatically.

These settings can be quickly adjusted in the menus if you find things too difficult or too easy. I started with the game by automatically adjusting my landings to avoid frequent bailouts, but after a few hours I was confident enough to control things manually. This feeling of progress was extremely gratifying.

Riders Republic Review: Career Mode

Riders Republic immerses you in a huge open world that brings together seven real American national parks, including Bryce Canyon, Yosemite Valley, and Zion. In just a few hours of play, your world map will be dotted with dozens of points of interest, events, and collectibles.

Before you can start exploring, you’re forced to complete the game’s frustrating and restrictive tutorial. Luckily, it only takes about an hour to complete, but it feels endless. It walks you through the basics, but you’re on an extremely tight leash. Please do not judge Riders Republic by their opening time.

The game’s career mode features five different courses: bike racing, bike tours, snow racing, snow tours and aerial events. They’re all pretty self-explanatory, and as you progress through each you’ll unlock “Big Events” that will really challenge you to prove your skill in each discipline.

The problem is, career events are extremely repetitive. Take the snow trick career, for example, each event is just another course for you to grabs, grinds and flips in the hope of getting a high score. Fortunately, you can switch between career modes at will, which increases some of the repetition. I have made a policy of never doing more than two events in the same career path consecutively to avoid burnout.

Fortunately, it’s not all races and trick events. There are side events outside of career paths that have more wacky goals. One asks you to deliver pizza within a time limit, while another straps you to a rocket-powered bicycle. These challenges are a real highlight, and I wish there were more to mix things up between the guts of the same competitions.

Progressing in Riders Republic is mostly about collecting stars, which you’ll earn for just about everything. While the stars may be awarded a little too often, you never have to complete activities that you don’t enjoy. Instead, you can choose what to focus on.

If you’re bored of career mode, you’re free to scour the world aimlessly for hidden collectibles or special relics, which unlock novelty vehicles like a surfboard. There’s even a Zen mode that drops you on the map without any lens and lets you travel the world admiring the (often beautiful) sights.

Riders Republic Review: Online Modes

Riders Republic is a very socially connected game. There are a multitude of ways to play with and against other players. The best of these are the much vaunted mass races.

These chaotic online events pit up to 64 players against each other in a single race. The results are utter carnage as you bump into each other and scramble for a podium spot. Ultra-competitive gamers may find them frustrating, but if you’re up for playing for fun, you’ll find them fun.

A chaotic scene from Riders Republic

(Image credit: Ubisoft Annecy)

It’s quite baffling that you can’t play mass races whenever you want. You have to wait for the game to initiate a call telling you that the game is about to start. This happens frequently enough that you don’t have to wait long, but why you can’t just do on-demand matchmaking is a real mystery.

Another nice multiplayer mode is Trick Battle. This team mode requires you to perform tricks on specific objects in order to gain control and score points. It’s a lot more fun than a standard trick competition, but there isn’t a lot of variety in the mode.

As you might expect, you can also participate in standard races and online tricks events, and you can travel the world with friends if you start to feel a bit lonely in the republic.

Riders Republic: visuals and sound

I played Riders Republic on PS5 and found its huge open world a real sight to see. It is an extremely geographically diverse place, offering everything from snow-capped peaks to desert canyons. You’ll often be driving too fast to take in the views, but when you stop for a moment, the beautiful scenery is sure to grab your attention.

A chaotic scene from Riders Republic

(Image credit: Ubisoft Annecy)

There are some clipping and animation issues that prevent the game from looking so good on the move. It’s not uncommon to get stuck on a large boulder or cluster of trees, but your unlimited use rewind ability can get you out of a traffic jam in the blink of an eye – although I had to start some over again. races because my competition had already exceeded the limits. the moment I took off.

Unfortunately, Riders Republic is not that easy on the ears. Every now and then, you’ll be forced to suffer through the NPC’s gnash-inducing dialogue that would have been stale even in the early 2000s. There’s also a custom soundtrack filled with licensed songs, but Riders Republic is the best for listening to your own music. I spend a lot of my time playing muted and a favorite podcast, which I found far better.

Riders Republic Review: Verdict

Riders Republic’s combination of a massive open world you can explore at will and a wide variety of gameplay is compelling. Career mode can get a bit repetitive as you level up, but the game never punishes you for shifting gears and doing something else when boredom sets in.

Developer Ubisoft Annecy has confirmed that more content is on the way, and with such a promising foundation already in place, Riders Republic could fit into something really special. They don’t really make games like Riders Republic anymore, but I’m glad Ubisoft did.

Federal government says man illegally broadcasting professional sports games tried to extort $ 150,000 from MLB

By Sports games

NEW YORK – A Minnesota man was charged Thursday with attempting to extort $ 150,000 from MLB while illegally streaming copyrighted content from major professional sports leagues online.

Joshua Streit, 30, of St. Louis Park, Minnesota, has been indicted in a criminal complaint filed in Manhattan federal court for extortion, accessing a secure computer to commit personal fraud, wire fraud and transmission illegal digital.

It was not immediately clear who will represent him in an initial appearance in federal court in Minnesota.

Federal authorities say Streit hacked into MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL computer systems to stream copyright-protected live games before trying to extort $ 150,000 to MLB by threatening to expose alleged vulnerabilities in MLB’s internet infrastructure.

Michael J. Driscoll, head of the FBI’s New York bureau, said in a statement that Streit – also known as Josh Brody – “hacked the systems of several of our nation’s biggest professional sports leagues and broadcast unlawfully copyrighted live games ”.

“Instead of stopping when he was in the lead, he allegedly decided to continue the game by extorting one of the leagues, threatening to expose the very vulnerability he used to hack them,” Driscoll said.

He added: “Puns are written in this investigation, and now, instead of earning a salary, Mr. Brody faces a federal prison sentence as a sanction.”

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said the four sports leagues facilitated the investigation into Streit’s activities, which spanned from 2017 to August, with one of the leagues claiming to have lost around $ 3 million from streaming.

“Streit has ended his illegal streaming and extortion program,” Williams said.

Authorities said Streit used the login details of legitimate sports league website users to access live streams which he then broadcast on a website he operated.

SU changes COVID-19 protocols for sporting events

By Sports events

With two more home football games and the men’s and women’s basketball seasons to come, Syracuse athletics are changing some of the COVID-19 protocols to attend the games.

To enter the Dome, children under 12 will not need to provide proof of a negative COVID test to enter, although all people 12 and over will need to provide proof of vaccination or a test. negative at least 72 hours before arrival.

All participants from 5 years old must wear masks.

County manager Ryan McMahon said the changes made sense.

“These kids need to be masked and most of them will be vaccinated soon as well, so we’re comfortable with that,” he said. “We’ve had some big events there and our contact search didn’t show any super-spreader events.”

The League also encouraged fans attending home football matches to visit one of the five pre-match screening sites. Those who get a bracelet will get in faster.

Screening stations are located at Quad, Stadium / West Lot, Manley North Lot, Manley South Lot and Skytop Lot.

For basketball matches, the verification of vaccines and test results will take place at the entrance gates of the stadium. No pre-screen tent is available.

McMahon says like all things during the pandemic, procedures can always change.

“This is what professional sports are doing now, and there are certainly medical providers out there looking at that as well,” McMahon said. “Like all COVID, we always reserve the right to pivot and change our mind.”

Separating Bally Sports app to watch Cavs, Guardians seems unlikely

By Sports app No Comments

If you’ve been eagerly awaiting a standalone streaming app to watch the Cavs and Guardians, your patience will likely be tested in the months to come.

Those who cut the cord or turned to another TV provider that doesn’t provide access to Bally Sports, Sinclair Broadcasting’s regional sports networks here and across the country, have been looking for ways to watch these teams.

Analysis:The economy is probably not a friend for prospecting for a Bally Sports app

But Major League Baseball and NBA commissioners have canceled those chances with recent comments.

There are two areas where there is potential for significant revenue growth in professional sports: gambling and direct-to-consumer viewing rights.

The game will eventually take care of themselves state by state, as these legislatures grapple with their respective issues. The area where sports leagues have the most control comes with the latter.

Take control of your rights

“We have been very clear with them from the start that we see these two sets of rights [gambling and streaming] as extremely valuable to baseball, and we’re not just going to throw them away to help Sinclair, ”MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said at a recent conference covered by the Sports Business Journal.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver recognizes the demographic forces at play.

“We’re very focused on redesigning the model in terms of the current distribution of our games, so that even though the games are on cable or satellite in the local market, fans who don’t choose to subscribe to a larger package are not disenfranchised from the league, ”he told the Denver Post. “The numbers are especially dramatic for our young fans who are usually not cable or satellite subscribers, or as far as they are, use it extensively to watch other platforms, using it as a provider. broadband. “

There is a generational schism in media consumption. The smartphone has become an indispensable device – despite a relatively small screen size – for watching everything from Netflix to, yes, live sports, and many young Americans are perfectly willing to pay for a broadband connection, but want to more freedom in programming.

Live sports remain popular with 73% of 18-34 year olds claiming to be avid or occasional fans, according to an online survey by Statista. The number is slightly higher for 35-44 year olds at 77 percent.

Bally Sports faces challenges

That brings us to Bally Sports, part of Sinclair’s Diamond Sports Group, which pitched the idea of ​​their standalone app earlier this year and the potential to raise $ 250 million to launch it. Burdened with debt from buying out the various regional sports networks that make up the company, Bally’s seemed optimistic about the prospect of being able to take away all the rights from the various teams they needed to make it work.

However, they probably know the challenges are even greater now: Cord cutting and streaming is the future and that future is fast approaching, according to a study by The Diffusion Group, a media research company.

Currently, 25 percent (38 million) of US homes have a high-speed Internet connection without subscribing to an over-the-air television service. Their research shows that will grow to 54 million households by 2025. These are households that will likely choose from a myriad of streaming services that match their habits and tastes, including sports.

This makes streaming rights extremely valuable in the coming paradigm. And don’t think MLB doesn’t know it. According to a New York Post report, they are already considering bringing a service to market – in partnership with the NBA and NHL – to solve this dilemma for consumers.

Some may balk or laugh at the prospect.

No.

Despite all of its archaic attitudes in some ways, MLB has always understood the digital realm. They already have.

MLB has come this road

MLB Advanced Media was formed with league resources in 2000. Two years later they aired their first game – the Texas Rangers vs. the New York Yankees, which was accessible to anyone outside of these viewing areas. teams. It was eventually separated from MLB in 2015 under the name BAMTech.

Since its inception, it has grown to eventually provide streaming solutions for CBS March Madness, WWE, HBO Now, Sony Playstation Vue, the PGA, and the NHL. The Walt Disney Company acquired a controlling stake in the company in 2017.

Back in the days when MLBAM first formed, no one had a clue how quickly cord cutting and streaming would evolve at this point. It remains an immature market with significant room for growth. Manfred and Silver recognize him.

At this point, why would they give the goose that lays the golden eggs? This fact could leave local baseball and basketball fans without access to Bally’s local sports networks by waiting much longer.

Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred recognizes the values ​​of streaming rights for his league games.

In order to fully accelerate in this high-potential market with the return of face-to-face events, the new Sodexo Live! brand will be based on three fundamental pillars, in particular:

1. A regional strategy to increase its global presence by consolidating its first three markets, North America, France and the United Kingdom, and by accelerating its growth in Spain and Asia-Pacific.

2. A sharp focus on priority business segments by continuing to deploy its expertise in major venues and events: stadiums and arenas, convention and congress centers, major international events, cultural destinations and more than 170 airport lounges.

“[The new Sodexo Live! brand] is intended to mark a clear investment in providing services beyond food and beverage and helps us expand our capabilities for customers,” Pangburn said. “With over 400 global locations, we offer a global and local approach that helps client partners think globally and attracts a more international traveler base.”

He continued, “Whether it’s in a city like Nashville, Denver, New Orleans, or Chicago, we’ll take advantage of areas where we already have multiple locations and show how they can connect more deeply with the local food scene and with the global community at large. large.. For meeting and event planners, we’re the same people behind the scenes and with a new brand identity. And we are now better equipped to leverage our global network of expertise to better drive revenue growth. »

In addition, Sodexo Live’s portfolio includes activities dedicated to specific areas of expertise, such as meetings, conferences and conventions. For example, Sodexo acquired Centerplate in 2018 to expand its presence in North America, and since then the two entities have partnered to generate strong market growth.

Like its parent company, Sodexo Live! is committed to social and environmental progress, supports its clients in promoting the environment and serving their communities by asserting itself as a local economic engine, by leading a committed approach to diversity and inclusion and by developing more responsible solutions for sites and events that respect the environment.

Sodexo offers its clients an integrated offer resulting from more than 50 years of experience, from catering, reception, maintenance and cleaning to the management of facilities and equipment; from services and programs promoting employee engagement to solutions that simplify and optimize their mobility and the management of their expenses, as well as home assistance, crèches and concierge services.

Founded in Marseille in 1966 by Pierre Bellon, Sodexo, based in Paris, is present in 64 countries and serves 100 million consumers daily through its on-site services, its benefits and rewards services and its personal and home services. Its North American headquarters is located in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

“Sodexo live! is the affirmation of a new ambition, because we bring together our expertise related to sport, events and hospitality under a unified global brand,” explains Nathalie Bellon-Szabo, CEO Worldwide of Sodexo Live! “With this launch, we reaffirm to our clients that we are the preferred partner to face the future and that we firmly believe in our 40,000 employees worldwide to offer them world-class, creative and value-creating services.”

Spectators are now allowed to attend school sporting events

By Sports events
  • Spectators are now allowed to attend school and interschool matches, training and sporting events.
  • Face masks should always be worn.
  • Sharing of drinks is not permitted.

New government regulations have been issued to allow spectators to attend school sporting events.

From Friday, spectators were allowed to attend all school and inter-school sports matches, training sessions and events.

School sporting events – without spectators – have been allowed since August after being suspended in May in the midst of the third wave of Covid-19.

Additionally, all intra-school and inter-school artistic and cultural activities can now allow audiences, including choir rehearsals and contests, spelling contests, speech contests and debates.

However, strict rules apply.

Face masks should be worn, including in locker rooms and training areas, except by those doing vigorous exercise.

READ | It’s the return to daily attendance for all primary school students in South Africa

Beverage sharing is not permitted, a Covid-19 compliance officer must be appointed for each site, and a log of all officials, students and spectators must be kept by a host school for at least 21 days.

Up to 2,000 people are permitted at outdoor venues and 750 or less at indoor venues.

But if the room is too small to hold the prescribed number of people while ensuring distances of at least one and a half meters between people, then no more than 50% of the capacity of the room can be used.

The regulation stipulates that the principal of a school or an organizer of a place who does not comply with the regulation commits an offense and is liable to a fine or imprisonment.

New policies to prevent hate speech at sports matches

By Sports games

MONTPELIER, Vermont (AP) – The Vermont Principals’ Association has announced new policies to prevent hate speech during sports games after several reported incidents of racist and sexist comments in recent high school games.

During a boys’ soccer match in Winooski-Enosburg last month, a few Enosburg players were accused of making racist statements. The Franklin Northeast Supervisory Union said it had conducted an investigation and found no evidence for such statements, but could not interview the Winooski athletes as they refused to meet with investigators. Days after that game, Burlington volleyball players faced racist and transphobic comments.

“We don’t have that anymore. And if someone does, we’ll take action against them, ”said Jay Nichols, executive director of the Vermont Principals Association.

Schools must read a statement before each event instructing athletes and spectators to behave respectfully or face the consequences, according to new rules released on Tuesday. The VPA has launched an online system where concerns can be reported and officials, such as referees, are to participate in implicit bias training this winter.

“We want kids to challenge people who say sexist or racist things to them or attack them for their religion or gender identity or whatever,” Nichols said.

Mario Tennis Aces (Switch)

Editor: Nintendo / Developer: Camelot

Release date: 22 June 2018 (United States) / 22 June 2018 (UK / EU)

All in front Mario tennis aces is a fun, arcade version of the world’s most popular racquet sports. However, beneath its colorful facade hides a deep mechanic that allows you to employ a variety of strategies to outwit and / or outwit your opponent on the other side of the pitch, whether it’s Brother Mario, ‘an anthropomorphic celestial body or a fire-eater. plant with teeth.

Rocket League (Switch eShop)Rocket League (Switch eShop)

Editor: Psyonix Studios / Developer: Psyonix Studios

Release date: November 14, 2017 (United States) / November 14, 2017 (UK / EU)

You could Say it’s the best football game on Switch and you won’t hear any arguments from us, although it may make some football fans worse. Having said that, people tend to get exasperated over the smallest things, like using the word “football” instead of “football” for example. Sometimes you can’t win.

This is unless you play Rocket league or everybody a winner, even when you lose as much as we tend to. Combining an accessible arcade-style car experience with a floating, giant take on the beautiful game, its large amount of pop-culture DLC might appeal to people (a certain demographic will find cars like the Back to the future DeLorean, ghost hunters‘Ecto-1 and knight rideris irresistible KITT), but it’s the raucous gameplay and adrenaline rush as your team passes the ball over the line that keeps us coming back.

So here we are. Rocket League – the best football game on Switch. *short*

NBA 2K22 (Switch)NBA 2K22 (Switch)

Editor: 2K / Developer: Visual concepts

Release date: September 10, 2021 (United States) / September 10, 2021 (UK / EU)

NBA 2K22 is another great entry into the franchise that continues the developer’s habit of providing sufficiently solid ports of their basketball sims on Nintendo Switch. Yes, most modes don’t try anything very new – beyond MyCareer’s revamped neighborhood setting – and loading screens will make your hair pull your hair out every now and then, but polished core gameplay and enough content for you to play until the end times make it an easy recommendation for b-ball fans.

Alternatively, the previous entry in the series (NBA 2K21, of course) does a lot of what this game does, and probably a lot cheaper if you can still find it.

Windjammers (Switch eShop)Windjammers (Switch eShop)

Editor: Dotemu / Developer: Dotemu

Release date: October 23, 2018 (United States) / October 23, 2018 (UK / EU)

If you’re looking for nasty two-player action, the cult classic of Data East Windbreaker is just the game you are looking for. With the same fast-paced, addicting gameplay that got us hooked in 1994, you’re going to need a second player to really get the most out of it, and luckily Switch makes it easy to play with a friend. It’ll have a sequel later this year, but until then it’s the first competitive disc-based sports game on the console and worth (re) discovering.

Super Mega Baseball 3 (Switch eShop)Super Mega Baseball 3 (Switch eShop)

Editor: Metalhead software / Developer: Metalhead software

Release date: May 13, 2020 (United States) / May 13, 2020 (UK / EU)

Sony stated that MLB the show It won’t be a PS4-exclusive platform in the future, but until that happens on Switch, baseball fans should investigate Super Mega Baseball 3. What it lacks in hyperrealism and officially licensed teams it more than makes up for with a carefully tuned physics set that is deep enough to cater for. RBI Baseball players while offering the welcome addition of some enhanced modes. Franchise mode on its own seems like a fitting extension of the brand, with its irreverent sense of humor that lends a welcome undertone to an otherwise content-rich sports simulation. Super Mega Baseball 2: Ultimate Edition is still great, but the sequel just gets better and so is the best baseball game on Switch – definitely worth it if you like that sort of thing.

Neo Turf Masters (Neo Geo)Neo Turf Masters (Neo Geo)

Editor: SNK / Developer: Nazca

Release date: 1996 (United States) / July 25, 2008 (UK / EU)

A classic arcade style golf simulation from SNK, Neo Turf Masters (Where Big golf tournament in the US) has been a winner on Neo Geo, and it continues to be extremely enjoyable on Switch over the past two decades. Wearing Hamster perfectly mimics the addicting gameplay of the original which grabs you whether you’re a fan of spoiling your rides or not.

If you’re happy with a more abstract approach to hitting a small white ball into a far hole, Golf peaks is a cute little puzzle that is worth a look and is critically acclaimed What is golf? coming soon to Switch. Until Mario and his friends from Mushroom Kingdom arrive on Switch’s fairway for a twilight game, Neo Turf Masters is arguably the best pure golf game on Switch. Of course, if you want a bit more RPG with your golf game, you’ll probably want to investigate our next pick …

Golf History (Switch eShop)Golf History (Switch eShop)

Editor: Sidebar games / Developer: Sidebar games

Release date: September 28, 2017 (United States) / September 28, 2017 (UK / EU)

If you remember Mario golf of the Game Boy Color, you will have a good idea of ​​the kind of RPG experience Golf history tees up. Fans of deep, realistic simulations might want to stay away, as Golf Story will allow you to use your ball skills in a wider range of settings than girding your Titlelist 2 down a boring old fairway. You’ll be called upon to feed hungry alligators, knock things off high surfaces, and relax with the occasional round of pitch ‘n’ putt. Not every game has to be decisive at Augusta or St Andrews, you know.

Golf Story is lightweight RPG nonsense of the highest caliber, with a healthy dose of golf. It’s a really nice indie Switch exclusive and we can’t recommend it enough if you’re a fan of RPG, golf, or gaming in general.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 (Switch)NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 (Switch)

Editor: Sports 2K / Developer: Interactive Saber

Release date: October 15, 2018 (United States) / October 16, 2018 (UK / EU)

If you think realism is overrated in sports video games, NBA 2K 2 Playgrounds could be exactly what you are looking for in a basketball game. Of course, it still features microtransactions and it will take you a while to take out each player (it’s still a 2K title, after all), but the basic hoop shooting experience is strong. It is not the NBA Jam-beater 2K positions it like, but if you get a buzz from big heads and a more arcade approach to the pitch, Playgrounds 2 is definitely worth it.

FIFA 19 (Switch)FIFA 19 (Switch)

Editor: Electronic arts / Developer: Electronic arts

Release date: September 28, 2018 (United States) / September 28, 2018 (UK / EU)

FIFA on Switch is weird. If you’ve never played a modern FIFA game and picked one of the Switch entries, you’d probably think it’s a good game. You wouldn’t be wrong – the basic soccer experience here is very solid. and enjoyable – but series veterans will find it hard to ignore the cut corners and caveats of the “Legacy” Switch versions. These games lack the key modes of their counterparts on PS4 and Xbox One, so if you’re a FIFA enthusiast with access to those, it’s hard to recommend these versions.

If you don’t compare alike, however, and are just looking for a good kick on Switch, FIFA 18, 19, 20 and 21 deliver a decent game, although the latter two have literally updated kits and player rosters for their respective years and nothing else. Frankly, we lost our patience with EA’s cynical attitude towards fans of the series owning Switch, so we were looking for a copy of 19.

OIA will allow fully vaccinated fans to attend high school sports matches – but not everyone is happy

By Sports games

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Starting next week, fans will once again be allowed in the stands during public high school athletic games.

The Oahu Interschool Association announced that spectators will be allowed both indoor and outdoor games starting October 20.

Those who wish to attend a sporting event will need to be fully vaccinated and will need to wear masks. Since children under 12 are not yet eligible for the vaccine, they will not be allowed to attend the events.

Many parents expressed disappointment that they were not allowed to attend the games. But even after the announcement, parents saw it as a mixed bag.

“It’s a blessing and we are grateful,” said Kiley Bagio, whose husband is on the football coaching staff at Kapolei High School and who has a son on the team.

“On the other hand, people like us who have children is a different story.

Bagio and Ihilani Cummings – who also has a husband on the coaching staff and a senior on the team – were delighted to finally be able to see a game in person.

But with the rules only calling for people who are vaccinated, their young children will have to stay home.

“My own daughters can’t even come and support daddy, so now my wife probably won’t be able to come unless a babysitter can watch them,” Kahuku High School football head coach Sterling Carvalho said. .

“We stand up for families,” Cummings said. “A lot of boys and their teammates have a lot of siblings, and siblings are their biggest fans.”

The OIA said fans are limited to groups of 25 outdoors and 10 indoors. Everyone must buy a ticket online, but there is no rule on the number of participants. There will also be a purchase limit of up to five tickets.

“Which rule applies? What games will we go to? We do not know. It’s just very confusing, ”Bagio said.

Following state guidelines, the OIA said food and drink will not be served at matches and only water will be available.

Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi said restrictions continued to lift on big events, but it still hinged on the vaccination rate.

“If you believe in the effectiveness of the reasons why we have worked so hard all these months, and challenged, asked, begged, begged people to get vaccinated, we are in a place right now where we need to do it’s not, ”Blangiardi said.

Even though not everyone in the family can attend, the coaches and players are at least ready to step onto the playing field after a long pandemic hiatus.

“So it doesn’t matter if the fans are here this week or from next week, it doesn’t matter at this point,” said Carvalho, whose Red Raiders travel to Kapolei for their game. opening of the season.

“It’s just taking the opportunity that we have the chance to play this Friday.”

The series has been MIA, however, but perhaps due to publishers’ stranglehold on sports licensing that the latest games have relied heavily on. It’s a shame too because kids these days will never know the greatness of Pablo Sanchez, arguably the best character to choose for a team.

It also appeals to older and newer boxing fans by having some of the best playable boxers of all time, as well as some of the best today.

Mac faces a number of different opponents who seemingly get more wacky than the previous one. Finding the tricks to take out each boxer added an element of strategy to the game that really makes you think of fighting. Despite Little Mac’s appearance in Super Smash Bros., there hasn’t been a new game since 2009. Punch-Out was definitely long overdue for a sequel and revival.

Could sporting events soon be broadcast in 3D?

By Sports events

The Unity video game engine is embarking on a major project, ready to revolutionize the broadcasting of sporting events. To offer a more immersive experience, the firm uses real-time 3D rendering to bring viewers even closer to the action.

Chances are, Unity is about to lead a revolution in sporting events broadcasting. In any case, it seems that a new era could be upon us.

By unveiling Metacast, a new technology that aims to capture and analyze the movement of athletes in real time, Unity wants to shake up the entire industry. A first collaboration took place with the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) to present the technology. A short video shows how this can bring viewers closer to the action, from different angles.

The benefits are manifold for athletes, spectators, analysts and sponsors. Unity hopes to run its system on more than 20 platforms. And it has been tested with other sports, like MMA (mixed martial arts), rugby, and basketball.

These new tools can help better analyze the movements and actions of players to learn more about their technique. Indeed, there is no doubt that the coaching teams will know how to make the most of this technology.

Then there is the idea of ​​being able to create interactive and dynamic content to reach viewers. This could involve the use of green screens to embed advertisements in real time.

During this time, spectators will enjoy an ever more complete experience, bringing them closer to the performances of the athletes.

Metacast is similar to another competing technology: Intel’s 2019 True View. Between the two, the big difference lies in the possibility of being able to achieve 3D rendering in real time.

In an interview with GamesBeat, Peter Moore, senior vice president of sports and live entertainment at Unity, said that by capturing athletes in real time, the company hopes to allow broadcasters to use imagery to get started. into “a new era of live sports”. .

This new technology allows viewers to switch to a first-person view, at least in the UFC, so they can put themselves in the shoes of a fighter facing their opponent.

In terms of technical details, the system is based on a volumetric capture of approximately five million voxels per second. A voxel is a three-dimensional pixel. In terms of quality, the rendering sometimes appears a little limited, but the images will undoubtedly improve over time.

Like you’re in the ring

So how does it work? Unity uses cameras to scan athletes’ bodies using 3D volumetric rendering technology. It involves capturing, visualizing, and interacting with the real world – whether it’s moving people or static objects – and all in three dimensions.

From there, the magic happens and the content can be viewed from any angle, anytime, as if you were truly in the ring. On the hardware side of the capture system, Unity is working with partners like Microsoft and Canon, before taking over for the 3D rendering side.

“Sports fans love to analyze the action at every level of detail,” said Peter Moore. “It’s the first time you’ve seen this level of resolution in three-dimensional visuals. We are lowering about five million voxels. We render and edit, then we can compute that in real time, push it to the cloud, and then send it to broadcasters. We see the first opportunity with the UFC, which is perfect for that as it’s a controlled environment in the octagon.

Watch out for a revolution, soon available in the live sports experience. – AFP Relaxnews

Fury & Wilder 3

In these battles, the men put everything on the line in the hope of proving that they were the best. These rivalries have helped create some of the best boxing matches in history. Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have fought twice already. The first fight was controversial as it ended in a decision that many fans disagreed with. Many agree that Fury took the lead until he was knocked down in the 12e tower. Nonetheless, Fury stepped onto the canvas. Wilder’s team believed the fight was over at this point. The fight ended in a controversial toss. In the second fight, Fury weighed 273 pounds. He admitted to putting on weight so that he could eliminate his opponent. He wasted no time as he defeated Wilder early in the fight.

Nonetheless, Deontay stood up and continued to fight. Fury would be too much for his opponent. Fury dominated Wilder from bell to bell until the fight was stopped in the 7e tower. Wilder’s corner had to throw in the towel to protect his fighter. Since then, Fury has been trying to set up a British showdown against Anthony Joshua. However, this will not happen. In May 2021, an arbitration judge ruled that Fury should honor his contractual clause and give Wilder a third fight. The rise of the fight has been spectacular with a lot of chatter from both sides. The fight will take place this weekend. It is a must have for any fan of the sport.

BKFC Montana

Despite some ups and downs, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship is quickly gaining ground. Fortunately, the organization is back with another event this weekend. This should be good as it features a showdown between veteran MMA Melvin Guillard and Joe Riggs. MMA fans will remember both fighters for having fought multiple times in the UFC. Riggs last fought against Hector Lombard and lost due to a controversial TKO. He will try to pick up the pieces when he faces Guillard. As for Melvin, he also experienced controversy.

In a fight, he was stopped when he was hit while on the ground. Then he was disqualified for hitting an opponent on the ground. Both men need a win. Therefore, it should be a big fight. Other fights on the card include Christine Ferea, Josh Wright, Tom Shoaff, and Taylor Starling. After the fans stop playing , they should watch the next BKFC show. They will not be disappointed.

UFC 267

Although the UFC has events leading up to UFC 267, most of them aren’t going to get fans excited. The next 267 event is expected. It has an exciting main event and a large co-main event. During the main event, light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz will face aging brawler Glover Teixeira. Although both men are older, they only get better with age. Glover has won five fights with victories over Anthony Smith, Thiago Santos and Karl Roberson.

He will have his arms full with the light heavyweight champion. Jan is also on a five-game winning streak, but he’s had to face some thinking competition. Surprisingly, he lost to Thiago Santos before beating Luke Rockhold, Ronaldo Souza, Corey Anderson, Dominick Reyes and Israel Adesanya. The fight should be interesting since the two men always come to fight. UFC 267 also faces a fight between former champ Petr Yan and Cory Sandhagen. Dan Hooker will face Island Makhachev. It should be one of the best UFC events of the year, so it’s worth checking out.

Quarantines put an end to some school sports games | News, Sports, Jobs

By Sports games

TUPPER LAKE – Quarantines fill a gap in high school athletic programs this year.

The Tupper Lake football team is in the midst of a period where games are postponed or canceled due to COVID-19 exposures inside and outside the district.

Last week’s game against Weedsport was called off because the Lumberjacks were unable to field enough players.

“A large part of our football team was in quarantine”, Tupper Lake Central School District Russ Bartlett said.

He said a group of players were in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 and had to self-isolate.

Tupper Lake has a smaller roster of football teams, which TLCSD athletic director Dan Brown says gives them less “flexibility” when there is a quarantine.

Football is a “high risk” sports for the transmission of the virus, according to the State Department of Health, as players are exposed and in close contact with each other.

All of the Tupper Lake squad came out of quarantine on Friday, Bartlett said, but the teams they are expected to play in the next few days have canceled or postponed their games for various reasons. Friday’s home game against the Thousand Islands Central School District was called off because the visiting team did not have enough players.

There are a variety of factors that can cancel or reschedule a match: Athletes quarantined on either team, or even bus drivers need to be quarantined. Sometimes they have days of notice, Brown said, sometimes hours.

He said TLCSD canceled all sports games and training for two days last week as the football team was quarantined.

Brown said that sometimes team morale is high because they feel united working through adversity. Sometimes morale is low as last minute changes and cancellations become frustrating.

Brown said tension was high as people dealt with sports stoppages. Each county handles quarantines differently, leading to some frustration, he said. Bartlett urged athletes and parents of athletes to be calm, kind, and reasonable.

The next TLCSD college football game on the schedule is Oct. 16 against the New York Mills Union Free School District at 1 p.m. ET.

Students get insight into major sporting events

By Sports events

Nicole Schuermann and Ryan Batawala were grateful for having had the opportunity to work at a large-scale event, the induction ceremony for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

By Rick Vacek
CUU Information Office

For Nicole schuermann, it started when she was going to Arizona Diamondbacks games with her family and one day proclaimed, “I could be the commissioner of baseball.”

Ryan Batawala (left) and Nicole Schuermann have made memories of their trip to the Basketball Hall of Fame.

For Ryan batawalaHe has his roots in basketball and rooting for the Los Angeles Lakers while growing up in Garden Grove, California.

For Skylar Aprati, it came from a determination to get involved in the sport in one way or another, even when injuries prevented him from playing.

Three Grand Canyon University students, three avenues in the sports business world – and two hugely rewarding trips to major sporting events on the East Coast.

Schuermann and Batawala were chosen to work on Enshrinement Weekend for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts on September 10 and 11, a trip made possible through GCU’s partnerships with the Hall of Fame and Position Sports. Aprati spent 14 grueling but exhilarating days working at the US Open tennis tournament in late August and early September in New York City.

All three returned with stories to tell and memories they will cherish – including some that may survive, affixed to the wall of a future office.

Schuermann, a senior specializing in sports management, had previously volunteered at events in the valley, such as Hoophall West and the Colangelo Classic.

The entire Hall of Fame weekend featured a who’s who in the basketball world in stylish settings.

But she wanted to do more. Thus, when the members of the Sports Business Club were invited this summer by a Colangelo Business College (CCOB) instructor, founder of Position Sports Kevin foley, to apply for the Basketball Hall of Fame, she jumped on it.

Applicants were required to submit a PowerPoint slide explaining their qualifications, and she and Batawala were chosen from a group of 15.

It was a dream weekend. They flew east that Thursday, attended the media session and gala on Friday, and then went backstage on Saturday for the actual ceremony. It was so much more than the flight and the venue and being surrounded by famous people. It was the aura of it all put together.

“Being able to attend an event of this magnitude before I even graduate and see if it’s even something that interests me was amazing,” said Schuermann.

“When I signed up for Sports Business I thought I would have hands-on activities because that’s what the advisors told us – GCU is all about practice. But then to be able to take a trip like this and see this – that was crazy. “

Schuermann was fascinated by several aspects of the experience, especially the media session.

Madness was there on her helmet when she served as a runner, handing the microphone to members of the media as they questioned the inductees. She liked the way Dr Mark Clifford, deputy dean of the CCOB and director of athletic affairs, described it: It’s like watching a duck glide through water – it’s seemingly serene above the surface but paddling furiously below.

The big moment for Batawala was the gala. He was able to be backstage and was the first person to congratulate the inductees and direct them to a photoshoot as they left the stage.

“We were really in the thick of it with the real talent,” he said. “So it was an opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at what it really means to work with professional athletes in their day-to-day lives, especially at a time that is so special to them.”

One of the inductees was Paul Pierce, a star with the Boston Celtics in their battles with the beloved Batawala Lakers.

“I grew up playing basketball,” Batawala said. “Being in the presence of some of the greatest athletes of my generation, the people that I watched grow up, was really something that blew me away.”

GCU students worked closely with the Position Sports team – Alex carlson, creative coordinator; Ashley Orozco, Events coordinator; and Melissa Meacham-Grossman, Senior Vice President of Business Strategy and Development. And that led to the best time of all.

As Schuermann and Batawala strolled with Carlson through the Hall of Fame Lobby on the day of the inductions, they ran into Jerry Colangelo, namesake of the GCU business school. Carlson introduced them, and it made for a memorable conversation and even more memorable photo with Colangelo.

The photo Batawala cherishes – him and Schuermann posing with Jerry Colangelo.

“He was super inviting. It was a pleasure to chat with him, ”said Batawala, a junior specializing in sports management. “He’s someone we idolized at our club for helping build what Arizona sports are like today. Being able to talk to him and choose his brain is an incredible opportunity, and this photo will someday be. hanging in my office It’s a moment I’ll never forget.

“It was a time when you are amazed and don’t even know what to say or think. You’re just like, ‘Wow, this is really happening.’ Being able to interact with him and show him that GCU has promising young sports professionals was something that was great for me.

Aprati is also part of the Sports Business Club, but specializes in communication and specializes in sports management. She decided this summer that she needed some experience at a professional event and targeted the US Open, in part because she had watched major tennis tournaments with her father, Brian Aprati, for so many years while growing up in Bolingbrook, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.

Skylar Aprati worked long hours at the US Open, but said she “wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

She had a phone interview with officials at the US Open, then a follow-up interview with Zoom, and she was there. His reward: working at one of the entrances, welcoming guests, giving them directions and suggesting good dining options, for 10 hours a day, 14 days in a row.

And even …

“I wouldn’t trade it for anything,” she said. “It was so much fun.”

It was her first time attending a professional tennis event, and she was even able to peek inside and watch some of the action. She had played tennis avidly in her youth before a broken ankle ended all dreams of continuing (“Tennis didn’t love me as much as I loved it”), then graduated from volleyball. in high school before a torn rotator cuff forced him to think about coaching rather than playing.

Luckily, he was offered a job as a student coach with his club team. “It sparked my love for the sport,” she said. The result is that she got involved in volleyball at a higher level and that in June she was responsible for the retail sales for the Junior Nationals Volleyball Championships at Navy Pier in Chicago.

Her career goal: She would like to do sports communication. “I’m not really against any sport,” she said. “Any sport is enough for me. Maybe even in baseball – she hopes to gain some experience in spring training next year.

Like the Hall of Fame, the US Open site is top notch.

Schuermann, on the other hand, is focused on event planning and possibly community outreach in the world of sports – if she doesn’t become Commissioner of Baseball, of course.

It started out as a joke, she said, but the more she thought about it the more excited she was to work in the sport in some capacity. And what would she do if she was a commissioner? The answer shouldn’t come as a surprise.

“Make sure they give back to the community,” she said. “Make sure we have a bunch of community outreach because we have to reach out to little kids. “

This is also what it is all about for sports business students: reaching out. Schuermann’s advice for any student who is hesitant to volunteer for an event, big or small.

“I would say definitely apply, even if you think you’re never going to get it,” she said. “Just by sending it, you went one step further than a lot of people. We never know. An experience like this could be the difference between deciding what you want to do in sports.

It could also be the first of many good memories.

Wales Introduces Mandatory Covid Pass for Nightclubs and Sporting Events | Welsh politics

By Sports events

The Welsh government’s controversial plans to introduce a mandatory Covid pass for nightclubs and major sporting events will continue after the To send supported the regime by the narrowest margins.

The Labor-led government has argued that the pass, which was due to go into effect on Monday, was necessary to bring down worrying rates of Covid-19 infection, especially among young people in Wales.

They claimed the program would ease pressure on the NHS and help keep premises such as clubs open this winter. They accuse those who oppose it of “blatant irresponsibility”.

On Tuesday evening, the Tories, Plaid Cymru and the Liberal Democrats all voted against the move, but the plan was passed by 28 to 27 votes.

Announcing the pass last month, Premier of Wales Mark Drakeford said he was determined to take stronger action, sooner, than the UK government in England, calling for measures that are part of the Boris Johnson’s “plan B”, such as a Covid pass and working from home, were in his “plan A”.

Drakeford dismissed the idea that the program was a vaccination passport in everything but the name, pointing out that it would be possible to get the Welsh pass by passing a lateral flow test.

A crowd of a few hundred people, some protesting the scheme – and some anti-vaccines – gathered outside the Senedd in Cardiff Bay ahead of the debate.

Health Minister Eluned Morgan said Covid cases were on the rise across Wales, particularly among young people, with rates for those under 25 of around 1,000 per 100,000 people. Morgan said these are the people most likely to go to places such as nightclubs. She said keeping those sites open had not been an easy decision in light of such high Covid rates. “We are facing some of the highest rates we have seen since the start of the pandemic. We have to do something to stop the turbo charge.

Morgan said the pressure on hospitals was steadily increasing. “There is a need to take early action to avoid longer-term damage. Scientists tell us to act early, to act now. Every day we hesitate, these rates are rising and we will put more pressure on the NHS. Not supporting this measure will be an act of blatant irresponsibility. “

Russell George, the shadow Welsh Conservative health minister, argued that the introduction of a vaccine ‘passport’ would lead to Wales becoming a checkpoint society.

Rhun ap Iorwerth, Plaid Cymru spokesperson for health and social services, said it was not clear how police could check to see if people were tampering with lateral flow tests and feared this would deter young people to get vaccinated.

Liberal Democrat Jane Dodds said she believed Covid’s passports were an “assault on liberty and liberty,” and added that the National Autistic Society had communicated her concerns to her.

The Night Time Industries Association (NTIA), which represents 100 sites in Wales, said the passes were “a significant obstacle” to its operations. He argued that operators could not afford the additional resources and logistical challenges that a Covid pass would create.

The Covid pass vote, in the Senedd on Tuesday, was itself criticized as controversial because a conservative MS was unable to vote due to an issue with his Zoom link.

NTIA Wales called for a new vote. “It is a democratic outrage that a member state which wanted to vote and which would have voted against the proposals, could not because of a simple technical error”, declared a spokesperson. “This mess will create even more uncertainty for our businesses.”

During the pandemic, South Florida was one of the nation’s most desirable locations, whether it was for the migration of the financial and tech industries, or for vacationers keen to enjoy our sunny shores. It is to the credit of how our region has adapted and prospered in the face of unprecedented circumstances. As we continue to rebound, we can learn valuable lessons from the many successes our community has had over the past two years.

For example, we saw championship-level post-season football last January in Miami when the Orange Bowl Committee (OBC) successfully hosted the 87th Capital One Orange Bowl and spearheaded the host committee’s efforts for it. 2021 National College Football Playoff Championship, both at the spectacular Hard Stade du Rocher.

These two national sporting events, while scaled down to meet pandemic response requirements, demonstrate the impact that successful major events can have, when they take an approach that follows health and safety guidelines.

Financial impact

Hosting approximately 30,000 fans generated more than 20,000 hotel nights and grossed over $ 40 million in direct spending in South Florida. The games also delivered full publicity for Miami and South Florida, reaching over 26 million viewers, and there were no significant health issues thanks to careful planning and careful adherence to protocols.

Beyond the economic impact, there were also the positive community benefits of the events. For example, nearly $ 3 million in renovations transformed 23 South Florida school multimedia centers into technology-rich innovation spaces that will impact thousands of students for years to come.

While the start of a new football season has been greeted with fanfare and fervor with stadiums at full capacity, we cannot take for granted all that we have been through as we continue to tackle the challenges of the pandemic. . As a region, we must remain vigilant and flexible. This is not said as a platitude, but as a foresight from an organization that has been instrumental in organizing major community events for nearly nine decades.

South Florida Heritage

Since 1935, South Florida has become the premier destination for hosting premier college playoff football games. Our ability to continue to build that legacy rests squarely on community collaboration and partnership to host marquee events, and always focusing on what’s best for South Florida.

It is this commitment that we will make as we host the 2021 College Football Playoff Semifinals at the Capital One Orange Bowl on December 31 at Hard Rock Stadium. And that’s an area we’ll be looking at even more when college football management considers future post-season models. We are confident that this track record positions the Orange Bowl and South Florida favorably to maintain our level one bowl status in post-season college football and to host many other College Football Nationals over the years. future.

Likewise, as our region looks forward to a bright future for many major events, we must share the goal of ensuring that every event planner, convention planner or leisure traveler concludes that the south of the Florida knows how to provide its visitors with a safe, comfortable and entertaining experience. As evidenced by our successes since last March, we know South Florida will continue to raise its level of play.

Jack Seiler is president and chairman of the Orange Bowl committee and former mayor of Fort Lauderdale.

By Sports events

Marketing of sports events

i Types of rights and ownership of rights

Professional sports are undoubtedly big business in the United States. The total size of the professional sports market in the United States, which was over $70 billion in 2021, consisted of revenue from four main streams: ticket sales, media rights, sponsorships and sponsorship. merchandising.40 The NFL, MLB and NBA are the three highest-grossing sports leagues in the world, and the NHL ranks sixth.41 Most property rights are treated the same in sport as in other areas.

The primary source of income for sports in the United States is media rights.42 The leagues are the holders of these rights under the Copyright Act 1976, which grants copyright protection to live broadcasts of sporting events.43 Ownership of these valuable rights has allowed American sports leagues to negotiate multi-billion dollar broadcast rights with television networks.44

For individual athletes, sponsorships offer a method of profiting off the field. Forbes The magazine estimated that as of 2021, America’s top five earning athletes – Dak Prescott, LeBron James, Tom Brady, Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry – have secured sponsorship deals collectively worth $190 million.45 Individual athletes, franchises and leagues can earn additional revenue by endorsing or licensing equipment such as shoes, jerseys and athletic gear, a market valued at over US$6 billion.46

ii Contractual provisions for the exploitation of rights

The SPCs of every professional sports league in the United States require athletes to cede the right to their likeness to the league or team. A typical example is the NFL’s SPC, which requires athletes to license their image for the promotion of NFL football or specific organizations within it, and grants the NFL the exclusive right to the image of groups of players, while reserving the athlete’s right to seek outside endorsements as an individual.47 These contracts may also prevent players from endorsing or even wearing certain brands; the NFL fined players for wearing brands such as Under Armor and Beats by Dre on the field when the league entered into sponsorship deals with their rivals.48

Marketing of sporting events

i Types of rights and ownership of rights

Sponsorship is one of the main sources of marketing for sporting events, as most of the time, national federations, leagues and clubs have long-term relationships with their sponsors. Each player in a major sporting event has their own rights to exploit them through sponsorship: tournament sponsorship rights are exploited and negotiated either by the organizing federation or by the league, but athletes and clubs can also exploit their own rights. An example of this type of rights within the sports industry are the sponsorships celebrated with sportswear brands: national federations also have their sponsor, clubs and athletes.16

Sponsorship agreements are atypical contracts, that is, they are not expressly regulated by law and depend exclusively on the free will of the parties.

Sponsorships not only exploit the trademarks and intellectual property rights of each party involved, but the image rights of athletes and players. The “image right” has two connotations since it is a fundamental right of the natural person and also constitutes an asset. Usually, clubs include a cession of image rights for their players or athletes upon hiring, and similarly clubs cede the rights to the league and the national federation to market the tournament.

The marketing of the merchandising can be carried out by the owner himself (the club for example) or through third parties. The example of sportswear brands is helpful in explaining this: National federations usually do not have the necessary infrastructure and therefore sell the merchandise through third parties who provide such services.

The broadcasting rights are due by the national federations and leagues. Each federation owns the broadcasting rights for their tournaments and events, and contracts are usually signed for several years. For example, the National Federation of Cyclists signed in January the broadcast agreement for their national competitions with RCN (a private broadcaster) for four years,17 after terminating the long-term agreement with Señal Colombia (the government broadcaster). This is an atypical agreement and not specifically regulated by Colombian law.

ii Protection of rights

Colombia has anti-piracy laws in place18 and marketing rights have been affected by this criminal behavior for years. However, Colombia has yet to enact or pass a law against continuous piracy.

Either way, hacking is a criminal behavior duly enshrined in the Criminal Code.19 for illegal exploitation of distribution rights and trademark misappropriation, and may lead to imprisonment.

iii Contractual provisions for the exploitation of rights

Sponsorship and broadcast contracts are not specified in Colombian law and can therefore be freely negotiated. Mandatory provisions are the general provisions established for all kinds of contracts (such as negotiating and agreeing in good faith, avoiding unjustified gain, not contracting for illegal activities, etc.).

As a general recommendation, contracts should contain an exclusivity clause to exploit the rights, at least in the domain to which the sponsor or broadcaster belongs, and in addition there should be a provision to prevent piracy through the protection of copyright owners. confidential information and contractual sanctions or fines if there is a leak of information.

iv Professional sports and labor law Mandatory provisions

The signing of professional (employment) contracts has compulsory legal obligations, such as the payment of social security according to Law 100 of 1993 (and additional rules) and registration with the national federation.20, 21

The general rule for employment contracts (and all other contracts) is to celebrate and sign only with people who have already reached the legal age. But there is an exception for sport: the youth code allows minors aged 15 to 17 to work if they have the authorization of the municipal labor administration and parents or legal guardians, to work under a contract. work for a maximum of 14 hours per week.

The Constitutional Court in judgment C-320 of 1997 mentioned that professional sport has a complex dimension, since it is a spectacle, a means of personal development, a professional activity and a ‘a company. The court said that the athlete’s right to freely choose to work must be respected and defended the legal provision to keep sports rights only for professional athletes.

Regarding wages, workers or employees cannot earn less than a minimum wage if the contract provides for the maximum working hours of 48 hours per week. This means that professional athletes must earn at least a minimum wage. It is common for athletes to enter into employment contracts with a defined duration, but protected by the right to stability established in labor law, allowing the parties to automatically renew the duration of the contract if there is no written notice requesting the effective termination of such contract.

Finally, only employers with professional athletes could have the sports rights of athletes, within the framework of the signed and executed employment contract.

Free movement of athletes

The general rule established in articles 74 and 75 of the Labor Code limiting the number of foreign workers was repealed by Law 1429 of 2010. The rule mentioned that entities in Colombia must respect the proportionality between the number of nationals (90 for hundred) and foreigners. (10 percent). But Law 1429, aimed at encouraging the creation of new and formal jobs, rejected the rule. This means, in general labor law terminology, that there are no restrictions for foreigners to work in Colombia or in any industry.

Nevertheless (and according to the principle of free will in establishing internal rules for associations and private entities – which falls under commercial law), federations could establish limits for their tournaments as to the number of foreigners working and participating.

Application of the rules of employment of the governing bodies of sport

Although Colombian labor law tends to be very protective of workers, it allows federations to fulfill their obligations to international bodies, unless the rules violate workers’ rights. Most of the time, international federations establish mandatory obligations, but when it comes to labor rules, they always respect internal laws, leaving to the national federation the task of harmonizing its various legal systems (private and public ).

The Constitutional Court in the judgment cited above (C-320/97) declared the free will of the federations to build their own rules, and that the athletes have the right to hold their own sports rights, as a development of their right constitutional to freedom. This is important, because it was only recognized by FIFA, for example, in the year 2019 (more than 20 years after the decision of the Colombian Constitutional Court).

All the questions

Marketing of sporting events

The marketing of sporting events in Ecuador depends a lot on the planning of the government and the Ministry of Sports.

It is very rare to see private sporting events in Ecuador, and for this reason, it is difficult to analyze the marketing of sporting events. This difficulty is due to the fact that our jurisdiction does not recognize the possibility of exploiting the events for financial purposes, but in any case, the marketing of a sporting event in Ecuador will have to take into account the following elements:

  1. intellectual property: intellectual property of sporting events in Ecuador should be the most profitable area to exploit, with trademark registration and subsequent licenses for alliances with well-positioned national or international brands;
  2. Merchandise: Marketing of genuine products made with unique qualities from sporting events is another great opportunity for the event or the organizers to earn income related to the sporting event. Although counterfeit goods are a problem that should be resolved by the authorities, the protection of intellectual property will help prevent counterfeiting and protect investments;
  3. TV rights: Obtaining TV rights in Ecuador is not yet essential income for sporting events as broadcasting in Ecuador is profitable as a separate industry, and for this reason producers prefer to invest in the production of different types of events or projects on television rather than in sport. Although television rights to football matches are the biggest income in professional football, this is not the general rule for sport in Ecuador; and
  4. ticketing: selling tickets in Ecuador is the usual way for sporting events and clubs to earn income. Many clubs and sporting events still rely heavily on the revenue generated from the sale of tickets to consumers.

i Types of rights and ownership of rights

Most sport-related rights in Ecuador depend on each sport, but there are a number of common rights.

As mentioned above, these rights are established in Ecuadorian jurisdiction and the most common are exploited for commercial purposes as the safest way to earn economic income.

Most Ecuadorian sports try to collect income with the following rights:

  1. intellectual property: intellectual property of sporting events in Ecuador should be the most profitable area to exploit with trademark registration and subsequent licensing for alliances with well-positioned national or international brands;
  2. Merchandise: Marketing of genuine products made with unique qualities from sporting events is another great opportunity for the event or the organizers to earn income related to the sporting event. Although counterfeit goods are a problem that should be resolved by the authorities, the protection of intellectual property will help prevent counterfeiting and protect investments; and
  3. ticketing: selling tickets in Ecuador is the usual way for sporting events and clubs to earn income. Many clubs and sporting events still rely heavily on the revenue generated from the sale of tickets to consumers.

Football in Ecuador is different, because it is the only professional sport, and there are several ways of obtaining economic benefits. The other two types of rights exploited in football are:

  1. TV rights: Obtaining TV rights in Ecuador is not yet essential income for sporting events as broadcasting in Ecuador is profitable as a separate industry, and for this reason producers prefer to invest in the production of different types of events or projects on television rather than in sport. Although television rights to football matches are the biggest income in professional football, this is not the general rule for sport in Ecuador; and
  2. transfer rights: the transfer of players in football is a very important way for clubs to earn income. In Ecuador, most football clubs sell clubs and try to sell players for large amounts to help them maintain a good structure.

ii Protection of rights

The protection of rights in Ecuador depends on the right protected. In addition, the rights holder can choose which jurisdiction can protect their rights.

The jurisdictions that can be used to protect rights in Ecuador are civil courts, criminal courts, administrative courts and sports courts. Using one will likely exclude using the others, and the decision to choose a specific jurisdiction depends on the benefits that jurisdiction gives.

The use of a jurisdiction also depends on the statutes of the national sports federation, which will allow or deny access to a specific court.

The most common courts used in Ecuador to protect rights are the sports courts due to the facilities provided and the specificity of the sport.

iii Contractual provisions for the exploitation of rights

There is no mandatory provision in Ecuadorian sports regulations that should be included in a contract for the exploitation of rights, and for this reason the contracts are drafted in accordance with the Ecuadorian Civil Law Code to structure all the provisions that must be included in the contract to be binding on all parties.

If a third party is interested in exploiting sports-related rights, the minimum contract provisions are the same as in a commercial contract and are as follows:

  1. parties;
  2. Goals;
  3. duration;
  4. Payment;
  5. jurisdiction; and
  6. alternative dispute resolution.

MONEYBALL: How Utah Jazz, Other Sporting Events Benefit State of Sport Economy

By Sports events

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – In case you didn’t know, the world of professional sports involves a lot of money.

Lots and lots of money.

Not only do elite athletes generate a lot of income – for example, Utah Jazz stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell are expected to bring in nearly $ 63 million in combined salaries this season alone – the dough that makes a game. so glamorous NBA can sink. to the area around the arena and beyond.

The larger the stage, the greater the economic impact on the city and region where the team or event is located.

For Milwaukee, the Bucks’ run to the championship brought in a lot of money, with the city’s tourism department reporting a $ 57.6 million windfall to the local economy, thanks to the NBA Finals.

In Utah, Jazz’s home games are also a boon to the economy. According to Jeff Robbins, president and CEO of the Utah Athletic Commission, a study a few years ago estimated that every NBA game in Salt Lake City generated around $ 1 million.

“If you look at the vendors, the restaurants, the hotels, you look at some kind of city converging to Vivint Arena in that local area, obviously there is significant economic activity,” Robbins told ABC4.com.

While putting income in the hands of business owners around the arena seems like a sort of obvious consequence of a sporting event, other impacts on a city or state are not as tangible, such as a jersey. Jordan Clarkson at $ 120 from the team store or a pre-game bite to eat at the nearby Crown Burger.

Getting the state of Utah on screens of all types – TV, computer, or mobile device – can also be incredibly valuable.

To that end, Robbins and the Athletic Commission believe they have a major opportunity next May to put southern Utah on the radar on a massive scale by hosting the 2022 Ironman World Championship in St. George.

Securing the event, which will be held for the first time outside of Kona, Hawaii, in the race’s 40-year history, was a major victory for the Hive State.

“In 2019, this had an economic impact of roughly $ 40 million and roughly 5 billion impressions, which is roughly $ 40 million in media value that you would have to pay if you wanted to promote Kona,” Robbins illustrates. .

Due to the cancellation of the Ironman World Championship in 2020 and 2021, the Sports Commission expects pent-up demand for his return to St. George to further increase media value, making the 2022 event a billboard. even bigger display for Utah. .

The landscape of the Utah sports scene has already changed a lot since the hosting of the Olympic Winter Games in 2002, explains Robbins. Highlights such as Street League Skateboarding last month, in addition to an NHL exhibition game on Thursday and Red Bull Rampage in October, are indicative of one thing: Utah lives up to the moniker. the Commission as the state of sport.

Growth may continue into the future with work currently underway to secure an additional Olympic bid over the next decade.

Having options readily available for sports fans to spend their money and have fun on the night of the big game may also get even better much sooner than an Olympic potential in the 2030s. While Milwaukee’s economic injection could Being attributed a degree to the Deer District, a shopping and dining area immediately surrounding the Fiserv Forum, where the Bucks play, the Jazz did not enjoy such a fan experience immediately around their field.

However, Robbins sees signs of improvement and realizes the potential already existing in downtown Salt Lake City.

“I think you certainly see active economic activity going on there,” he says, citing the construction of several new hotels and buildings in the southeast corner of the arena, as well as the 2017 renovation of the building. himself. “As for outdoor shopping and things happening across the street, as the economy gets better and things get better, let’s hope that continues to evolve. “

Above all, the sport, and the Jazz in particular, have made Utah a worldwide name as an invaluable brand and promotion vessel. One of Robbins’ favorite stories is that of Zions Bank CEO and Chairman Scott Anderson, who was recently on an excursion to a remote part of Africa when a native enthusiastically recognized the basketball note logo. -ball on his son’s Jazz hat.

It helps that the team is led by a host of globally recognizable stars, such as Mitchell; Gobert, originally from France; Ingles, an Australian; Clarkson, a Filipino-American; and other international talents.

“When you start to look at the reach that Jazz has nationally and globally, I think that’s where it really helps that we’ve become an international team,” says Robbins. “When you look at the expansion of the NBA in the international world, it’s important. They are in Asia, they are in Europe, the players come from all over and it hasn’t been that long when it wasn’t necessarily the case.

University of Hawaii fans still banned from attending sporting events

By Sports events

After discussions between state and city officials on Friday and this morning, fans are still not allowed to attend University of Hawaii sporting events due to coronavirus concerns.

“Unfortunately, the answer is still no,” Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi said following a Zoom meeting this morning with Governor David Ige. The governor was not available for comment this morning.

Hawaii Department of Health Director Dr. Elizabeth Char, State Emergency Management Agency Director, Major General Kenneth Hara, Mayor Sam Moku’s Chief of Staff and Legal Counsel from the city and county also attended this morning’s meeting, Blangiardi said.

The request included consideration of next Saturday’s homecoming soccer game against Fresno State and is the latest of several proposals for UH to host fans that have been denied since the government order ended. August. According to the warrant, 10 people are allowed inside and 25 outside during certain events in Oahu due to an increase in coronavirus cases.

The restrictions, which were extended for a second 28-day period this week, can be adjusted based on changing conditions, officials said.

The school has hoped to welcome at least a few vaccinated, masked and socially distant student-athlete families and friends at its sporting events, as the number of COVID-19 in Hawaii has declined from a peak in early September.

UH also has a soccer game Thursday at the Waipio Peninsula Football Stadium and a Rainbow Wahine volleyball game Friday at the SimpliFi Arena at the Stan Sheriff Center.

UH has already played without a spectator this season in its first two football games at the Clarence TC Ching complex on campus, its first five home volleyball games on campus, and its home football games in Waipio and on campus.

Each home football game at the 9,000-seat Ching Complex can generate around $ 570,000 in revenue, said UH athletic director David Matlin earlier this month. Volleyball games earn about $ 75,000 each. There is no admission fee to UH football matches.

UH athletes have not played in front of home crowds since spring 2020 due to COVID-19 precautions. Hawaii is the only one of 130 FBS (the highest division in college football) teams not to allow fans to attend home games this season.

Hafthor Bjornsson vs. Devon Larratt fight crashes Core Sports website

By Sports website

The Core Sports website is suffering from blackouts apparently due to the popularity of the Thor Bjornsson boxing match against Devon Larratt.

We are only a few hours away from the highly anticipated Hafthor Bjornsson vs. Devon Larratt boxing match. And it looks like users who bought the PPV can’t see the stream – at least, not on the official Core Sports site. Core Sports website crashed for many users – citing a database error.

What originally started as a mega Hafthor fight against Eddie Hall of strong men turned boxers – the first event suffered a few setbacks and a few roster changes. Much of this was due to the fact that Eddie Hall was suffering from an injury and had to drop out of the game. With the strongman match postponed for now, Bjornsson has agreed to face Devon Larratt. The title fight is scheduled for today at 4 p.m. EST.

But it seems that those who wish to fight Hafhtor Bjornsson now face another hurdle – as the official live streaming site is currently suffering from outage issues. As of this writing, no official statement has been made by Core Sports. It seems the overwhelming popularity of the fight caused the website to crash.

Technically, the PPV event has already started – with more fights on the map leading up to Hafhtor Bjornsson’s headlining match against Devon Larratt. Just a few hours away, fans are hoping the issue will be resolved in time.

In Core Sports’ latest Instagram promotional post, many fans inundated comments that they couldn’t watch the feed or even load the website without an error message:

Hafthor Bjornsson vs. Devon Larratt: the story so far

Prior to the fight, Thor Bjornsson has been working on his boxing skills steadily for over a year and a half now and has made great strides. The skills he was able to develop have been truly impressive and show that he has more than enough talent to perform well against professional boxers. His weight loss and transformational shredding has also garnered a lot of attention in the world of strongmen and boxing.

Devon Larratt, meanwhile, has little to no boxing experience. The arm wrestling champion recently admitted he was a terrible boxer ahead of his match against Thor Bjornsson. While arm wrestlers are known for their immense strength, you need more than just power to be a successful boxer. Devon Larratt certainly has an uphill battle ahead of him.

This kind of website overload isn’t necessarily a new story in the history of popular streaming events. HBO’s hugely popular Game Of Thrones series suffered website and streaming outages often during the series’ finals and premieres, due to the show’s overwhelming popularity.

Unlike Game Of Thrones, however, this is a PPV event with fans paying specifically for this singular stream. As a live sporting event – this kind of breakdown is painfully frustrating for those looking to see the fight live – and those looking to get their money’s worth.

Some fans have said that the Core Sports app performed better when connecting to the stream. If you’re ready to watch and having trouble logging into the website, try visiting app.coresports.tv and log in with your account. Generation Iron has not confirmed that this technique works – but it can be useful for those worried about missing the headlining event.

This story is still in development – so stay tuned to Generation Iron Fitness Network for more updates and results for the match as they become available!

Unvaccinated New Yorkers with tickets to sporting events face a dilemma

By Sports events

BUFFALO, NY (WIVB– Following an explosive announcement by Governor Kathy Hochul on vaccine requirements at sporting events, many ticket holders were left with questions.

If around 30% of Erie County is unvaccinated, that means several thousand fans with tickets now have just over a week to decide whether they want to get their first vaccine or sell their tickets. One, Kylie, sells her tickets to the Eric Church concert 10 days before it performs at KeyBank Center.

She says she doesn’t feel comfortable getting the required vaccine. “Those who go, I hope they enjoy the shows, and those who can’t, stand firm and do what you think is right for you,” Kylie said.

Kristen Pachucki is also selling her tickets on Facebook for less than face value because she can’t be sure she will be refunded. “We contacted the insurance company because we purchased insurance for them, and we also contacted Ticketmaster and Key Bank, and we didn’t hear anything,” she said. “Except that Ticketmaster has said that currently their policy is not changing.”

Nick Giammusso runs VIP TIX, which resells tickets. He said that while Bills season ticket holders can get a refund if they sign up by Friday night, they will lose their seniority. “It’s frustrating because we don’t have the answers right now,” Giammusso said. “Fans would use a service like ours to resell their tickets so they can keep their seniority. ”

Attorney Corey Hogan said his office was considering legal action based on the flood of calls he had received regarding vaccine needs at Highmark Stadium and KeyBank Center. “I have now probably received between 75 and a hundred calls from obviously very upset and unhappy fans, believing that the Bills have pulled the rug out from under them,” he said.

Many Bills tickets and concert tickets will likely sell for less than market value over the next few days due to this new rule and the uncertainty of refunds.

POC fights for the funding of four major international sporting events in 2022 │ GMA News Online

By Sports events

The Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) is pushing for funding for four major international sporting events next year under the General Appropriation Act (GAA) of 2022.

In a statement on Wednesday, POC Chairman Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino said the House and Senate had pledged to include funding for the Beijing Winter Olympics (February 4-20), the Asian Games Thailand Martial Arts and Martial Arts Games (March 10-20), Huangzhou Asian Games (September 10-25) and Shantou Youth Asian Games (December 20-28).

“Speaker of the House Lord Velasco and Speaker of the Senate Vicente Sotto III have ensured budget inclusion for four major international competitions next year,” Tolentino said.

“This after the Ministry of Budget and Management did not award a single centavo to the Philippine Sports Commission [PSC] budget for these big events.

Tolentino, also the head of cycling, added that the CEP will now determine the composition of the delegation for each major event to determine the necessary budget.

“Budget hearings are approaching, so we have to be firm,” Tolentino said. “Philippine sport must be steadfast as we must maintain the momentum of our successful campaign at the Tokyo Olympics.”

On Tuesday, the POC already announced that it will send a delegation of 160 people to AIMAG 2021 where the Philippines will participate in 21 of the 31 sports.

In the 2018 Asian Games, the Philippines won four gold medals as well as two silver and 15 bronze plums.

Meanwhile, figure skaters Edrian Celestino and Sofia Frank will battle for a spot in Beijing as part of an Olympic qualification in Germany later this month.

The Asian Youth Games were last held in 2013 in China, where the Philippines won five medals.

Latest Covid-19 strain derails some sporting events in western Montana

By Sports events


School officials in Sanders and Mineral counties are closely monitoring a resurgent wave of the Covid-19 virus and its high-profile Delta strain as the specter of canceled or postponed school events altered schedules last weekend.

One of the first and most stringent measures came from the Plains School District, which reverted to at least temporary distance learning situations for students in grades 9 to 12.

The district also took immediate action and canceled or postponed all “extracurricular activities” until Monday, September 20. The move affected the scheduled home football game against Flint Creek and several volleyball games.

Home games against Troy last week and Eureka next weekend have been removed from the schedule. Road games were also held on September 11 against Missoula Loyola and Bigfork on September 16. The cross country team did not participate in the Flathead Invite on September 10.

At that time, the next volleyball game would be a home game on September 21 against Noxon.

A statement from the Plains School District on their website states, “Due to the recent spike in Covid-19 cases and the long list of wanted students, as of Monday, September 13, PHS students in grades 9 through Grade 12 will use distance learning. “

The statement stressed that the changes apply to “grades 9 to 12 ONLY” and that kindergarten to grade eight will still be on campus to learn and participate in extracurricular activities. “

Schools in Thompson Falls have also prepared precautionary measures if the number of Covid cases continues to rise. These precautions were based on a confirmed case involving a high school staff member.

“The staff member’s last day of school attendance was Thursday, September 9,” an article said on the school district’s website. “If any students or staff are at risk of exposure, the Sanders County Health Department will be in contact with that person to determine a safe and appropriate course of action.

“It is always recommended that anyone who feels ill or ill to consult their doctor for specific instructions. Stay safe, the ad concluded.

A home football game scheduled for Thompson Falls on Friday night went as planned, although the start of the game was delayed by an hour while school officials waited for thick smoke from the wildfires to create temporary dangerous breathing conditions to dissipate.

In addition, the Blue Hawks volleyball team went to Deer Lodge over the weekend and played as scheduled. There was no immediate word on whether a match scheduled for later that same day at Anaconda had gone as planned.

Schools in Noxon took a similar approach to that in Thompson Falls, advising those feeling ill to seek advice from their health care provider after Sanders County health officials confirmed that a student who was in contact with a confirmed Covid-19 patient had been informed of possible exposure.

A volleyball match scheduled for Saturday night at Noxon against St. Regis went on as scheduled, although the start time was moved forward by one hour as no JV matches took place.

A similar situation existed in Hot Springs where a student, who is also a member of the volleyball team, was identified as having had possible exposure contact with a Covid-positive individual.

Because only seven players have turned up for volleyball this year at Hot Springs, their scheduled volleyball game was called off last weekend. Covid’s contact measure, coupled with a previous injury to one of the players, would have left the team with just five active players.

Six players are needed for each volleyball team.

Elsewhere, there was no report of a scheduled volleyball game between Superior and Charlo to be held in Charlo on Saturday night.

Sports fans who support teams at any of the six schools in Sanders and Mineral County can contact the school if they have questions about scheduled events or Covid protocols.

The President of the Croatian Olympic Committee, Zlatko Mateša, said that in addition to the impressive results of the Zagreb athletes who promote the city, the tourist effects achieved through the sporting events are an integral part of this success.

“Almost every year we have sporting events that significantly affect the occupation of tourist facilities in Zagreb, and the already established and world famous ones, like the Snow Queen or Hanžek, have been doing so for many years. European tourist destination for Advent events, the Sljeme Snow Queen gives Zagreb an additional icing on tourist attractions at this time of year. The renovated RŠC Jarun also offers the opportunity for major sporting events. European and global level, so we will soon be talking more about it in the context of sports offer and sports tourism.Many smaller sporting events with a long tradition also significantly enrich the sports offer in Zagreb, which is really diverse and brings it together in one place – that’s to be commended, ”said Mateša.

The website is available in six languages ​​- English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and, of course, Croatian, and the navigation is designed by categories which can be searched quickly and easily.

Croatian Tourism and Sports Minister Nikolina Brnjac said Croatia has proven to be an excellent host in the organization of many sporting events. The management of such events contributes to a more complete and diversified tourist offer.

Therefore, I call all organizers of sporting and other events to once again assume responsibility and compliance with epidemiological measures, and tourists to responsibly enjoy the wealth of tourism offers Zagreb and Croatia. “

Here are all of the best sports games at the end of 2021

By Sports games

This weekend, the 2k gaming giants released “NBA 2K22,” the latest edition in the virtual basketball franchise.

Which got us thinking, what other sports games are expected to be released soon? Usually, the end of a year is loaded with big releases.

So if you’re waiting for new editions like PES or FIFA, or even something more specialized, here are all the releases to watch out for.

September 30 – eFootball 2022

Platforms – Windows, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, Android, iOS

This is the end of the namesake Pro Evolution Soccer, as PES has now rebranded “eFootball”. The new game is now free and uses Unreal Engine 4 for the first time.

What can we expect? It’s unclear whether eFootball will have the rights to all teams and leagues, but they have guaranteed the resemblance of teams such as Barcelona, ​​Bayern Munich, Juventus, Manchester United and Arsenal.

eFootball was released a few days before FIFA, and the free-to-play nature is obviously an effort to create its niche in the market. You will be able to play a number of game modes, with cross-platform usage betting on success.

October 1 – FIFA 22

Platforms – Windows, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, Nintendo Switch, Stadia

The highly anticipated new version of FIFA will be released on October 1. It launches a new “Hyper Motion” technology to make this version as realistic as possible.

People know what to expect from FIFA lately. FUT or Ultimate Team is a huge draw to the game, with the classic career mode and a teased online career mode.

In FIFA 22, you can expect even more teams and stadiums, as well as the ability to build your own club from scratch; the badge and the kit in the colors of the stadium and the house. To find out more, we’ve got everything you need to know about FIFA 22 here.

October 15 – NHL 22

Platforms – PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S

Much fun can be had from the NHL game franchise over the years. This year’s iteration will see “Dual Entitlement” to be able to play between Playstation and Xbox consoles.

The NHL 22 game will see the use of a new “Frostbite” engine to provide better graphics and overall realism. There is also a “Superstar X-Factor” feature to customize your own player.

Overall, this game aims to make the game run smoother, with better hitting, passing, and blocking moves. It will also feature the new Seattle Kracken franchise in the league.

October 28 – Republic of the Cavaliers

Platforms – Windows, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, Stadia

This could be a first for most, unless you are following gaming channels or posting articles. ‘Riders Republic’ is like a hybrid of SSX, BMX and .. skydiving? It’s a big bag of tricks.

The five main sports of Riders Republic allow players to mountain bike, ski, snowboard, wingsuit fly, and wingsuit fly rocket (whatever it is) in a multiplayer game scenario.

You go up against over fifty other people online in a Fall Guys type of racing that feels like total mayhem. The backdrop is a multitude of American national parks like Yosemite and Mammoth. Looks like it’s worth the trip.

November 9 – Football Manager 2022

Platforms – Windows, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, Android, iOS

With this game not scheduled for release for almost two months, we don’t know too much about the latest edition of Football Manager. If we go by last year, there will be hope for further improvements this year.

Last year’s game saw the introduction of much more statistically heavy content like xG data and match analysis. The graphics related to the gameplay have also seen a big improvement.

An unfortunate absence from this year’s game concerns the rights of Manchester United, who may be known simply as ‘Man U’ in the game. Gaming experts expect more details to be revealed in late September.

Is it safe to attend football matches and other sporting events during a pandemic? A guide

By Sports events

The factors that made pre-pandemic sporting events fun – horny people getting together, clapping, talking, eating, drinking and sometimes doing all of these things indoors – make gambling potentially problematic now. Ignoring the risks associated with these activities could leave us “stuck in epidemic mode,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on CNN’s new day on September 7.

The coronavirus is spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes and others breathe in these droplets, or when the virus accumulates or circulates in the air. Obtaining the virus from surfaces is also possible, but it is not a primary mode of transmission, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said. The level of safety or risk may depend in part on your vaccination status, as unvaccinated people remain unprotected against the coronavirus.

Due to the way the coronavirus can be spread, indoor events are higher risk than outdoor events – so it’s important to “make sure this is an outdoor type event,” said Krystal Pollitt, assistant professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health and professor chemical and environmental engineering assistant at the Yale School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
The CDC recommends that unvaccinated people avoid large gatherings with other people outside their home. Of course, the safest way to enjoy big game is to watch it on TV or online. But if you choose to be there in person, here’s what you need to know about planning and attending sporting events, regardless of your immunization status.

Preparing for an in-person sporting event

Before going to a sporting event, know the number of cases of Covid-19 both where you live and where the event takes place. “The higher the transmission of COVID-19 in the community, the higher the risk of transmission” during the event, the CDC said.
Call the venue or check its website to verify if the venue follows CDC guidelines for sport events Where large gatherings, or similar advice. Some of these safety measures include holding the event outdoors, requiring all participants to wear masks, regular cleaning, and blocked seats or visual cues for physical distancing, CDC said. A higher risk event would be if it takes place in an indoor space, most people, but not all, wear masks, and the event uses only a few strategies to reduce risk. Some sites may require participants to either provide proof of a negative coronavirus test taken a few days before the full vaccination.
Indoor events need to be well ventilated, said Dr Ada Stewart, a family doctor at Cooperative Health in Columbia, South Carolina, and president of the American Academy of Family Physicians, in April. Signs of a well ventilated room include the ability to run fans and open windows or doors. High ceilings and portable air purifiers with HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are also helpful.
If knowledgeable employees are unsure of the quality of ventilation, other measures are particularly important – such as limiting the number of participants, requiring people from different households to stay at least 6 feet away from each other. other and ask that people constantly wear masks. The CDC recommended avoid large gatherings that do not have these precautions in place.
Do you have to cancel travel plans?  A medical expert intervenes

If you want to be very ambitious about protecting yourself and assessing actual ventilation yourself, you can get an inexpensive carbon dioxide monitor to track concentration levels and changes over time, Pollitt said. Levels above 800 to 1,000 parts per million would be of concern, Pollitt added, because it would mean that the air is not circulating well enough.

What to do on match day

Pack hand sanitizer and more than enough masks. To reduce the risk of Delta variant infection, fully immunized people should wear masks in crowded indoor and outdoor public places in areas of high or high transmission, and if they or their roommates are immunocompromised or at higher risk. of severe Covid-19, The CDC recommended. Unvaccinated people should wear masks in these environments, regardless of the level of transmission of the coronavirus. CNN medical analyst Dr Leana Wen suggested wearing a surgical mask that is at least three ply.
What is the risk of eating inside if you are fully vaccinated?  Here's what an expert says
Venues should disinfect common areas and seats at least once a day or between each match, CDC advised, but bring disinfectant wipes to use if necessary.

Eat ahead “so that your chance of not having your mask (on) is limited,” Stewart said in April.

If you don’t eat ahead, there are two issues, said Wen, who is also emergency physician and visiting professor of health policy and management at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health. “One is that people take off their masks to eat if they are near each other,” Wen said. “If everyone is well spaced and it’s outside, the risk is very low. But if they are close to each other and take off their masks to eat, near or inside, it increases the risk. “

Here's everything you need to know about social distancing

The other is “the people coming together,” Wen added. “Probably to get in (the game) you have to queue. This is something that is hard to avoid. But you can avoid the concession stands during peak times. So bring your own drinks if you can. . You I don’t necessarily want to have to go to a concession stand just to buy water if you need it. ”You can also bring your own snacks, but consider packing something that won’t take long to eat.

“Tailgating is another one of those centuries-old traditions,” but don’t be left behind by people outside your household, said Regina Davis Moss, associate executive director of health policy and practice at the American Public Health Association.

In all areas, not vaccinated, immunocompromised people and other vulnerable people should try to stay at least 6 feet from others as much as possible. To reduce your contact with frequently touched surfaces, opt for contactless payment when available.

If you have to use the restroom or buy food, try going during the less busy times rather than half time or downtime.

And look for other ways to reduce risk when shopping for food, Davis Moss said. When getting mustard for your hot dog, for example, be sure to use a hand sanitizer before and after because condiments “are surfaces that a lot of people are going to touch.” Condiment packs are safer.

Not yelling about a score or a bad game can be difficult, but the louder your voice, the more likely you are to produce virus-carrying droplets or aerosols if infected, even if you wear a mask. Try to keep your voice at maximum normal volume, Pollitt said.

Finally, you can leave a little before the end of the game to avoid the crowds when navigating the parking lot or in transport.

Government confirms increase in crowds at sporting events from September 6

By Sports events

SPORTS STADIUMS IN Ireland will be allowed to return to 50% capacity from September 6, and all other restrictions for indoor and outdoor events are expected to be lifted from October 22.

And outdoor sites will be allowed to operate at 75% of their capacity from September 6 if all participants are fully immunized. Accompanied minors – under the age of 18 – will also be allowed to attend these events.

Taoiseach Michel Martin confirmed the new guidelines during his speech of government buildings in Dublin tonight.

Starting September 6, there will be relaxation of restrictions on indoor and outdoor events and mass gatherings.

From that date, theater, music and live events can take place for people vaccinated at 60% of their capacity indoors and 75% outdoors.

However, when customers have mixed immunity status, the capacity limit will be set at 50% and subject to appropriate safeguards including social distancing between groups and face masks.

Starting September 20, restrictions will be relaxed for indoor and outdoor group activities.

Then, from October 22, the government hopes to be able to remove the legal requirement to prove immunity to access indoor events, as well as lift all remaining restrictions on indoor and outdoor activities.

Increase in attendance at sporting events from September 6

By Sports events

Sports stadiums can return to 50% of their capacity from September 6, as the government has announced plans to lift most Covid-19 restrictions in Ireland over the next two months.

Speaking to government buildings this evening, An Taoiseach Micheál Martin said the restrictions would be “gradually and carefully relaxed in September”, before a “significant change in approach” in October.

From September 6, outdoor events will be allowed to operate at 75% of their capacity, provided participants are fully immunized.

However, for events where clients have mixed immunity status, capacity will remain capped at 50% and subject to protective measures such as social distancing between groups and wearing face masks.

All other restrictions on indoor and outdoor sporting events must be lifted on October 22.

The announcement will allow for greater participation in events such as League of Ireland fixtures and race meetings.

The All-Ireland football final between Mayo and Tyrone on September 11 was already scheduled to take place in front of 40,000 spectators, although it remains to be seen whether the easing of restrictions will facilitate a much larger crowd.

At this time, the GAA does not limit participation to those who have been vaccinated, although it has previously indicated that it will consider any requests from the government on how it is handling events at Croke Park.

Some fans are applauding the proof of vaccination for sporting events. Others ask for refunds

By Sports events

A team official even said the rule will increase attendance by reassuring fans that they can safely gather, shout and sing.

90 minutes south of Oregon State’s Reser Stadium in Corvallis, the same policy gets a very different answer. A new college rule requiring vaccination or a negative test to attend home football games, which begin on September 11, has so far prompted requests for reimbursement or future credit for around 250 football season tickets.

As for those who are happy with the additional measures, “I haven’t heard from anyone from that point of view,” OSU Vice President and Sporting Director Scott Barnes said.

Covid-19 testing requirements for sporting events are expanding nationwide to include proof of vaccination, as the highly contagious Delta variant is filling intensive care beds even in states like Oregon, which have largely avoided the worst infection rates earlier in the pandemic.

The small but growing list of teams requiring a vaccination or negative test include the NBA Toronto Raptors and Portland Trail Blazers, the NFL Las Vegas Raiders and New Orleans Saints, and the LSU, Boston College, the ‘Oregon and Oregon State in college football. Some teams act on their own, while others follow the changing rules of parent company or public health officials as infections increase.

Last Friday, the US Open of Tennis announced that it would require proof of at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine for entry to the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, NY. Play in the main draw of the tournament started on Monday.

“I think that’s where it’s going to go,” said Mike Golub, president of Portland Timbers and Thorns affairs, which announced its vax / test policy in mid-August. “We thought it was the right thing to do.”

As new policies emerge, reactions to them often follow regional politics, with Democrats expressing greater confidence in Covid-19 vaccines than Republicans. In the three counties that encompass Democrat-controlled Portland, between 66% and 74% of the population is fully vaccinated, well above the national rate of 53%.

“We are closely monitoring the number of our tickets that are sold in the secondary market,” Golub said of the Timbers and Thorns. “And we are carefully monitoring tickets that are not exchanged, that is, tickets that are not used.”

Both figures, he said, are “significantly higher” than they were before the pandemic. With Covid-19’s stricter entry rules, Golub said with “great confidence” that match attendance will increase.

The total of 14,299 in Thorns’ game against NJ / NY Gotham FC last Wednesday, when the policy took effect, was down about 2,000 from a home game earlier in August. A spokesperson for the team attributed the drop to the match being on a Wednesday and said the vaccine requirement was “widely adopted by our fans.”

The state of Oregon and Oregon are respectively 90 minutes and two hours south of Portland in adjacent counties. School athletic departments, which draw fans to the city as well as rural counties with full immunization rates below 50%, have seen mixed reactions to their recently announced terms.

Oregon’s pre-season ranked No.11 football season kicks off Saturday against Fresno State in Eugene, the first time in 22 months that Autzen Stadium has welcomed post-season Ducks football fans. of last year, shortened by the pandemic and without fans.

Late last week, former Oregon student Stephanie Penrod said she was told the athletics department would not issue any refunds and was waiting to receive a response on her request. to postpone its subscriptions to next year.

A spokesperson for the Oregon track team said fan feedback on the vaccination policy was very positive and officials were discussing with affected customers their options, including credits and refunds. .

“One of the main reasons I’m upset is that I feel like they’re targeting unvaccinated people, that we might as well wear a scarlet letter,” said Penrod, a mother of three from. 43 years old who lives in Portland. She said she felt the Covid-19 vaccines had not been proven to work without long-term studies.

Requiring everyone to test negative rather than vaccination would be fairer, she said, but added that it is difficult to get regular test results on short notice.

“Most of the seats are reserved,” she said.

In the state of Oregon, football season tickets lost so far due to fan objections to the new restrictions represent less than 2% of the 13,900 total, said Barnes, the athletic director.

“The things that are not known, obviously, are: has this announcement somehow slowed down new season ticket purchases?” Said Barnes. “What will happen to the single game – we are also counting on the single game buyers. That impact? Remains to be determined.

Across the country last spring, a handful of teams reserved a few sections for vaccinated fans, starting with the NBA’s Miami Heat. The New York Knicks later said they would require fans to be vaccinated to attend the second round of the playoffs, then lost in the first round. The Knicks have not announced a policy for this season, which begins in October.

The teams making the rules strongly urge fans to arrive early and have their documents ready: usually a vaccination card, a negative test result within 48-72 hours of the event’s start time, or a photo of one or the other. The policies generally apply to persons 12 years of age and over.

Rules in the sport come as more and more large companies require employees to be vaccinated and the world’s largest concert organizer, Live Nation Entertainment Inc., will demand proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test to enter all its sites and festivals from in October.

Susie and Charlie Dugal, who have held a New Orleans Saints membership for 23 years, said the August 23 crowd for Jacksonville at the Caesars Superdome was smaller than usual for a pre-season game. Match officials, enforcing a new city rule, asked fans to show a negative test or proof of at least one shot from Covid-19, which fans could get outside the stadium.

The Dugals are both vaccinated and were happy to be back at the stadium that day. The two had Covid-19 a year ago, with Susie having spent two months in the hospital. Following this infection, she uses a small tank of oxygen that Charlie usually carries.

“I just have to stay close to him,” she said.

VANCOUVER, Aug. 23 (Reuters) – The Canadian province of British Columbia will require customers of non-essential businesses such as restaurants and movie theaters to be vaccinated against COVID-19 starting September 13, the government said on Monday.

The vaccine requirement will also cover fitness studios as well as indoor sporting events, concerts, weddings and other private and public social events, health officials said.

British Columbia, Canada’s westernmost province, reports some of the country’s highest rates of new COVID-19 cases per capita and recently mandatory vaccines for long-term care home staff. The province reported 663 new cases on Friday, the most recent data available. Read more

People wishing to enter a non-essential business must have at least one dose of the vaccine starting September 13 and both doses by October 24, Premier John Horgan said.

“There is no reason that those who wish to participate in the social and economic life of our community cannot take this next step and get this safe and effective vaccine,” Horgan told reporters.

Quebec was the first province to introduce vaccine passports for non-essential businesses earlier in August.

Vaccination warrants are becoming an electoral issue in the current federal election in Canada, which Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called on August 15.

Trudeau’s center-left Liberal Party introduced mandatory vaccines for federal workers before the election called and supported calls for new mandates, as have left-wing New Democrats. The Conservative Party of Canada has said that such mandates will hamper individual freedom. Read more

Currently, 73% of Canadians aged 12 and over are fully immunized, according to government data. The majority of Canadians are in favor of blanket immunization mandates, according to a Nanos Research poll in early August, with 74% in favor or somewhat in favor of such a measure.

Boise State Athletics Launches New Sports App For Stats, Tickets & More – The Arbiter

By Sports app

Accessing all of the latest sports news from Boise State just got a lot easier. With the launch of the Boise State Broncos Athletics app, fans will have multiple resources and features compiled in one place.

Released on August 2, the new sports app launched just before the start of sporting events so fans don’t miss it. The app is free and can be downloaded from Google Play and the Apple App Store.

According to the creators of the app, they had only one goal: to deliver an amazing product.

Graduate Marketing Assistant Amber Dalgleish, Community & Fan Engagement Director Cameron Howard, Assistant Sports Director Matt Thomas and many more worked on the design of this app with Boise fans in mind. State.

“We really wanted to focus on engaging students and trying to be more active in our community by reaching out and bonding with them more,” said Dalgleish. “We have tried to give the fans the best experience outside of match days.”

From team schedules to sports news, the app has it all. It includes schedules and rosters for each Boise State Athletics team, a fan guide, and a map showing sports venues and places to purchase items such as tickets, merchandise, and concessions.

“We took everything from team rosters to fan guides and put everything in one place,” Howard said.

According to app developers, their favorite part of the app is the shopping feature. Users can purchase tickets, merchandise, and concessions during the game through the app.

“One really cool feature that I’m excited about is the way our app is integrated with our Ticketmaster system, as well as a mobile ordering system for dealerships,” Thomas said. “You can place your order on your phone and then go pick it up. This dramatically decreases the wait time and saves you from missing out on the action, stepping out on The Blue or inside the arena.

The app also offers a rewards program for all app users. Users can earn points by attending games and events which can be used for in-app rewards and will stay with the user until the end of the year.

If fans save enough points, they can redeem them for prizes like gift cards, Boise State products, AirPods, or even a 40-inch Samsung TV.

If fans want these prices, however, they should save their points quickly as the premium prices are limited. Fortunately, the prices are updated seasonally, so more prices will be added than the reward points can buy.

“If you want to start earning rewards, start building them now so you can be the first to get the highest prizes,” Dalgleish said.

Weiss cautious about sporting events amid city’s COVID cases

By Sports events

Juneau, Alaska (KINY) – With the City and Borough of Juneau Emergency Operations Center raising the COVID-19 community risk to Level 3 High, the Juneau School District is working to keep events going. weekend high school athletics scheduled, according to JSD Superintendent Brigitte Weiss.

“Everything happens quickly,” Weiss said. “We are adapting as quickly as possible to new expectations and directives. We still believe at this stage, we are still a few days away, to be able to continue our activities for the weekend. These are outdoor activities, which help us enormously.

Teams from hosts Juneau-Douglas and Thunder Mountain, Petersburg, Haines and Skagway are scheduled to attend Saturday’s Sayeik Invitational cross-country meet at Sandy Beach, an event that also includes a community run. The Juneau Huskies football team is set to host a highly anticipated game with the Dimond High School Lynx of Anchorage.

Weiss said the Dimond team would arrive, play and leave on the same day. It’s the same mitigation plan the Huskies and Crimson Bears and Falcons submitted to the district before the start of their seasons.

“We already have many mitigation strategies in place to help us do this in the safest way possible,” she said. “Again, we are still a few days away, so things could change. For the cross-country competition, some districts may decide not to come. »

The Juneau School District is tied to the city’s mitigation plan.

“We have some exceptions because we have a different environment and a mandatory requirement to provide services to children,” Weiss said. “We have certain exemptions to be able to operate. But regarding the masking decision and that we are outside on their property to exercise, we expect our guests to follow these guidelines.

Weiss said the school district expects attendees at sporting events this weekend to be six feet apart or wear masks.

“We don’t want crowded booths without masks,” she said.

Weiss said policing this policy is the challenge and asks for help from the community.

“Our ability to keep activities going depends on how well we can keep people healthy and how the level of COVID in Juneau goes up and down,” she said. “We cannot force anyone to do anything and we certainly have a challenge ahead. Last year we saw the challenge at some of our events that were monitoring this. So we really rely on people’s cooperation.

Continued spread of COVID or attendee opt-outs of mitigation policies could result in closure of in-person activities and enrollment.

Weiss said that the travel situation of each activity is monitored taking into account where the events are taking place, whether the event is indoors or outdoors, the duration of a trip and the levels of travel. mitigation of host and traveling communities.

“We try to be clear on all variations,” Weiss said. “Literally, every trip has been different depending on the circumstances. We hold ourselves to a high standard in terms of what we do to provide the right opportunities for children and support for children and to keep our schools and community safe. At the end of our day, the biggest number one priority continues and always will be to maintain full-time in-person learning with as little disruption as possible. That’s our first priority, everything else has to fit around that.

Teams traveling to Juneau must follow JSD mitigation policies.

According to the state health department, about 76 percent of Juneau residents age 12 or older are fully immunized. Statewide, that figure is about 54 percent.

Most of the state is considered at a high alert level, a designation based on new cases reported in the past seven days. Juneau and Anchorage are among those in high alert areas.

Currently, athletes can play outside without a mask. Spectators must be masked.

Student-athletes are also tested weekly and may be exempt from testing if fully vaccinated. There is no obligation to be vaccinated, but to be tested.

Weiss said the number of fans attending events, even outdoors, could be capped if COVID numbers increase.

“It was a strategy we used last year when we needed it,” she said. “We were hoping we wouldn’t have to, but we might have to move on to it if we don’t see a change in the trend here in Juneau.”

“They have had a great start to the season,” he said. “What will be important is to control the space in front of our defense line. If we lose the ball, we must immediately counterpress.

“We have to avoid deep passes behind the defensive line. We are going to try to win some balls in our opponent’s half of the field and try to counterattack ourselves,” said Nagelsmann.

Gambling on simple sports games, auto racing and fighting will soon be legal in British Columbia

“We are delighted to finally make this offer a reality for our PlayNow.com players, who for years have expressed a desire to be able to place sports bets on a single event on PlayNow.com.” – BCLC spokesperson Matt Lee

Bettors in British Columbia will be able to place single game bets starting August 27. But it is not clear whether they will be able to do so elsewhere than in the government’s betting service.

The federal government confirmed Thursday that new legislation coming into effect at the end of this month will leave the regulation of sports betting to the provinces.

“Canadians will have the opportunity to participate in single event sports betting in a regulated and secure environment at the discretion of the provinces and territories,” Attorney General David Lametti told reporters on Thursday.

Following Lametti’s announcement, a spokesperson for the BC Lottery Corporation confirmed that the crown corporation would be prepared to take bets on unique events, such as sports games, auto races and fights, via its online service PlayNow.com, from August 27.

“We are delighted to finally make this offer a reality for our PlayNow.com players, who for years have expressed a desire to be able to place sports bets on a single event on PlayNow.com,” said the spokesperson for BCLC Matt Lee in an email.

Since 1985, PlayNow.com has been legally required to include two or more results in any sports bet, known as a “parlay”.

But bettors who wish to place similar bets in person and not online will have to wait.

Blame the technology, Lee said, because terminals currently installed in retail stores are not capable of taking single bets.

“Until then, Sports Action retail will continue to offer crippled sports betting,” he said.

And as it is, third-party operators are not legally permitted under provincial gaming control law to conduct, manage or operate a commercial gaming system in British Columbia, even though there are many offshore sites that accept bets from Canadians.

Don’t expect the BCLC’s legal monopoly to change after Thursday’s announcement, said Jon Festinger, a Vancouver lawyer who served as executive vice president of business and legal counsel for the Vancouver Canucks from 2005 to 2010. .

“I think (BCLC) does not want to open it because they see themselves as a business whose responsibility is to create revenue for the government, and a lot of it is redirected to good ends,” he said. he declares. “It gives them a moral foundation.”

The BCLC pays its gambling revenues to the provincial government, which spends this money on education, health care, and community and cultural programs.

Still, there will likely be pressure for the market to open up further, said Jim Brander, a professor at UBC Sauder School of Business.

He pointed out another vice – alcohol – to be explained.

“I think it makes sense that the provinces regulate online gambling rather than the federal government,” he said. “It’s like alcohol; you want the people closest to the situation.

And like gambling, alcohol sales bring in a lot of government revenue. For much of the last century, alcohol could only be purchased in stores operated by the provincial government.

“But gradually the private sector grew, so it wouldn’t surprise me if it did grow,” Brander added. Private liquor stores were first technically legalized in 1988, but their growth was limited by a moratorium that was not lifted until 2002.

Of course, the sale of alcohol is a tangible product. Selling bets is not.

“It’s a different product, but there are still similarities,” he said. “In the end, you prefer legalized and regulated businesses.

It is mainly to help with bookkeeping.

Fuhrmann noted that he is still working on other logistical things to, he hopes, include a season pass to be purchased online, but for now, those wishing to purchase this option should head to the main office of the high school to complete it. transaction.

A Belarusian court banned a popular sports portal and called it “extremist” amid intensifying repression against the media and civil society.

The Home Office said on August 6 that Tribuna.com and all of its social media channels were banned because its administrators posted “materials calling for extremist activity.”

Sharing content from the sports website could result in fines or jail time, the Home Office said.

Access to Tribuna.com in Belarus was blocked last year following an August 2020 presidential election that gave strongman Alyaksandr Lukashenka a contested sixth term.

The creator of the Tribuna.com project, Dzmitry Navosha, is a strong supporter of the pro-democracy protest movement challenging the Lukashenka regime. He is also the founder of Sports.ru, a Russian sports website.

Commenting on the labeling, Navosha said on Twitter that her websites will continue their work.

“In general, avoid reading material that is not recognized as extremist. This is of course now such a sign of quality,” he said.

Lukashenka has stepped up the crackdown on activists, media and civil society in recent weeks, as the country approaches a one-year mark since the disputed presidential election sparked unprecedented protests and international condemnation of his government.

How to know if a sports streaming website is safe

By Sports games

There’s nothing better than watching your favorite teams and matches in real time. Thanks to the internet, computers and smartphones, there are sports streaming websites that provide the latest tournaments at your fingertips. Many sports channels offer live broadcasts of a range of sports and even top games like Tokyo Olympics, but some of them require a paid subscription in order for you to watch live matches or see exclusives.

Luckily, there are sports streaming websites that allow you to watch matches for free. From football live streams in esports, anyone can watch live matches anywhere and anytime. However, while there are free and legit live streaming sites, there are also many fake, malicious, and insecure sites.

Are sports streaming sites safe?

As mentioned, sports streaming sites are generally safe, but there is no denying that there are malicious sites as well. In fact, according to the Premier League, around one million people watch football live streams illegally. The temperature also reported that league officials are taking steps to block these illegal live streams.

Since these sites will continue to scam people, the best way to deal with them is to identify them before browsing or watching on streaming sites. Also, it is recommended to use a VPN or proxy while streaming online to protect your IP address. Apart from that, here are other ways to check if a sports streaming site is safe and secure.

How to check if a streaming site is safe

1. Is it a reputable site?

First of all, do you know the site? Is it from a reputable brand or channel? It is highly recommended and encouraged to watch from well-known channel, brand or streaming sites like ESPN, FOX and others. Ultimately, watch from a site recognized by the sports community.

If you are visiting a streaming site for the first time, take the time to research it. Find out how long, learn what the sports community is saying, and check who’s behind the website. If a streaming site asks you to pay to watch a game, be careful about the payment details you provide.

Some reputable sites ask for payment since they also pay to stream the game, so this is normal. However, this still does not guarantee if a site is legitimate. The best way to enjoy your game and be safe while streaming is to watch from well-known sites.

2. Are there a lot of advertisements?

Have you ever gone to a free streaming site that has too many pop-up ads? Here’s a sad truth about products and services: if you don’t pay, you are the product. And free streaming sites often make up for their service by running lots of ads.

Unfortunately, some of these websites display malicious advertisements. In reality, to research by Belgians from iMinds – KU Leuven and Stony Brook University, USA, analyzed over 23,000 streaming websites and found that around 50% of the video overlays on the site were malicious.

If you’ve ever used various streaming sites, that means half of them contained pop-up ads with malware attacks disguised as fake “close ad” buttons. Also, if you’ve ever needed to download software to stream the game you wanted, it’s most likely malware. Remember that simple internet rules apply when browsing streaming sites. This includes not clicking on suspicious links or advertisements and downloading dubious files.

3. Do you have security software?

If you have security software on your device, it will protect you and keep you safe from malware. You can also try scanning a website before browsing it. There are many malware scanning websites out there, so make it a habit to check a streaming site.

If you don’t have security software installed and can’t download one or scan the URL immediately, an easy way to check if a streaming site is safe is to look to the left of the site’s URL website. Is there a lock icon next to it? If so, that means the page has an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate. This technology ensures that your connection and data are safe, secure and free from cyber threats. URLs with an SSL certificate begin with HTTPS (HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure), which is also a good indication of a secure website.

For added security, make sure you have security software installed and always keep the lock icon in mind when accessing a site for the first time.

4. What does the website look like?

Sometimes it can be pretty obvious that a site is suspicious or fake just by looking at its design and layout. Is the site well structured? Is it easy to navigate? Are the links and pages responsive? If your answer to these questions is entirely negative, it is best to leave and look for another site to stream your games. A webmaster who does not care about the design and functionality of his website may have another goal for this site.

Dishonest links are a common trait of fake or malicious streaming sites. These are links that entice you to open a link. It can be an advertisement, a download or other links that will make you curious or compel you to click on them. Also, when you click on links or buttons, malicious sites often redirect you to unrelated sites or to multiple sites, so that’s a bad sign. These websites also usually contain explicit images in the form of advertisements or banners to trick users into clicking on them. Ultimately, if a website doesn’t look right, it’s best not to continue browsing to avoid introducing malware to your device.

5. How does the site present its content?

Legal sports streaming sites have a license to broadcast live games, so you can easily stream the game on the website itself. Meanwhile, most illegal sites host live games on another site. If you find yourself redirected to another site to watch the live stream, you better leave immediately before your device becomes a risk.

Moreover, it is also rare for sports streaming sites to allow their users to download the raw video file after the live broadcast. Other sites offer offline viewing, but you don’t get the actual video file. So, if you happen to download a live stream, there are three possibilities: you downloaded an illegal copy of the live stream, you downloaded malware, or both. In all these options, you risk downloading harmful and illegal content.

Protect yourself and enjoy watching

Remember to ask yourself the above questions every time you go to a new sports streaming site. These are also useful even when watching non-sports streaming sites. Wherever you browse, protect yourself by installing security software and always be alert with the pages you browse. In short, think before you click!
