The most extensive collaboration of its kind in club history, W88 will work with Wolves as lead partners on various beneficial activations.

“We are delighted to reinforce W88 as our main sponsor for Wolves’ first season in the Premier League, and we anticipate an active supporting bureaucracy going forward,” said Wolves chief executive Laurie Dalrymple.

“The dedication they showed to wolves even extended to them by letting their emblem be changed from their traditional brand blue color to black and gray to complement our old gold, which we really appreciate.

According to Dalrymple, Wolves have always been a good family club. Therefore, we take our obligations to children and young fans very seriously.

“In light of this, we have entered into a second agreement with a different company which will feature on all junior kits, which we will unveil very shortly,” the statement read.

Wes Golden Endorses Sheriff John Fuson – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Clarksville, TN – I am honored to announce my approval and full support for Republican Sheriff John Fuson to continue serving as Sheriff of Montgomery County.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sheriff Fuson for the past two years. During our time together, I found her commitment to Montgomery Country to be a high priority in her life.

As a sheriff, he worked closely with the Tennessee Sheriff’s Association and served the TSA as Vice Chairman in 2017/2018, and led the TSA in 2019/2020. Sheriff Fuson continues to work closely with our state’s sheriffs to enforce laws that affect the safety of our citizens, and alongside our state delegation and the Tennessee General Assembly.

As Montgomery County continues to grow, we must have a Sheriff who is committed to our community and our safety. Sheriff Fuson shows his commitment every day through school safety, public safety and justice reform to allow Montgomery County to grow and prosper safely.

His efforts to create a public safety training complex will ensure that we have a group of well-trained and skilled first responders dedicated to keeping our community safe. I know he will continue to improve our county due to his previous programs which continue to have a great impact on our community.

I am convinced that Sheriff John Fuson is the right choice for Montgomery County, and it is for all of these reasons and more that I give him my full endorsement and support to continue as our Sheriff of Montgomery County.

Russia claim Wimbledon title from Elena Rybakina

By Sports games

The Russian Tennis Federation was quick to claim Elena Rybakina as “our product” in their run for the women’s title at Wimbledon.

They went on to praise her training schedule in the country after winning the Venus Rosewater Dish as Wimbledon champions while representing Kazakhstan.

“It’s the Russian school, after all. She played here with us for a long time, then in Kazakhstan,” Russian Tennis Federation President Shamil Tarpishchev told sports website Championat on Saturday after Rybakina beat Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 on the center court.

Rybakina, 23, was born in Moscow and played in the Russian system until 2018, when financial problems led her to change nationality.

There was no official reaction from the Kremlin to Rybakina’s success at Wimbledon, but some commentators claimed his victory as a Russian achievement and a symbolic snub to the All England Club’s ban on players representing Russia and Belarus.

Players from these countries were banned from the Wimbledon tournament due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Some Russian state media have highlighted Rybakina’s roots in Moscow, with others choosing to simply call her a “representative of Kazakhstan”. The last Russian woman to win a Grand Slam singles title was Maria Sharapova at the French Open in 2014. Moscow-born Sofia Kenin, who left Russia as a baby and plays for the United States, won the Australian Open in 2020.

Kazakhstan, meanwhile, are delighted to have their first Grand Slam singles champion. “Kazakhstani tennis player Elena Rybakina has achieved a historic victory in the very prestigious Wimbledon tournament. I warmly congratulate this outstanding athlete! wrote President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev on Twitter.

Rybakina’s victory is the culmination of a long-term plan for tennis in Kazakhstan. The oil and gas-rich Central Asian nation has a long tradition of homegrown success in sports like boxing and cycling, but has often relied on recruiting talented tennis players from Russia. Rybakina, known for her big serve that netted 253 aces this year, made the switch at 19 when her career stalled due to financial issues. The Kazakhstan Tennis Federation stepped in with an offer – to represent them in exchange for the money needed to support a tennis player’s global lifestyle. Rybakina said this week that she felt like she lived on tour rather than in one place.

When Rybakina – nervous, barely smiling, apparently not quite sure what she had achieved – stepped into the stands of Center Court on Saturday to celebrate with her team, she kissed the first KTF President Bulat Utemuratov, then Yaroslava Shvedova, the former player who became her mentor. Shvedova, like Rybakina, was born in Moscow, switched allegiance to Kazakhstan in 2008 and won two Grand Slam doubles titles.

Rybakina’s victory also comes at a tense moment in relations between Russia and Kazakhstan.

The year began with the deployment of Russian troops to its Central Asian neighbor to quell protests that turned violent. Kazakhstan’s government welcomed the move, but was particularly reluctant to endorse Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which began the following month. President Tokayev told Putin at a televised conference in St Petersburg last month that Kazakhstan would not recognize the two Russian-backed separatist governments in eastern Ukraine.

Rybakina was reserved in her comments on the invasion.

“I just want the war to end as soon as possible. Peace, yeah,” she said after her quarterfinal match.

On the banning of players representing Russia, Rybakina said: “When I heard that, it’s not something you want to hear because we play sports. Everybody wants to compete. They don’t did not choose their place of birth.

By Sports games

These revised regimes will bring more transparency and accountability to benefit athletes in record time, the Minister explained.

Sometimes it took more than 1-2 years to approve the proposal. wanted and subsequent approval of the cash reward, the applicant must now apply online for the cash reward program within six months from the last closing date of the particular event,” he said. added.

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

By Sports events

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Teaching teachers – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Updated: 09 Jul 2022 08:10

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Interest in EduCoach is growing, even abroad.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tennis-Australia wary of kissing ‘Nincompoop Nick’ Kyrgios

By Sports games

Nick Kyrgios’ transformation from doubles artist to Grand Slam singles finalist is one of the most remarkable tennis stories of the year, but Australian fans could be excused a little caution before embracing his success at Wimbledon.

His response to Rafa Nadal’s withdrawal from their Wimbledon semi-final on Thursday was loaded with the kind of respect that defined the interaction between top players in this golden era of men’s tennis. “Different players, different personalities,” he posted on Instagram. “I hope your recovery is going well and we all hope to see you back in good health soon. See you next…”

However, Kyrgios’ long track record of deviating from the path of mutual respect has caused many Down Under to hold their breath and wait for the return of what a local newspaper dubbed ‘Nincompoop Nick’ this week. From on-court meltdowns, broken racquets, accusations of tanking and an infamous Stan Wawrinka sled to his regular abuse of referees, barely a tournament goes by without Kyrgios incurring the wrath of the administration .

Even on the march to his first Grand Slam singles final, there were two incidents deemed worthy of fines from the All England Club which left some of his countrymen embarrassed, others seething. He then learned he would face court next month in Canberra for simple assault on a former girlfriend.

‘MORE MATURE’ There’s never been any doubt about the 27-year-old’s talent, nor a shortage of theories as to why he’s never realized it before – both from the Kyrgios himself and media that reported on his career.

“I just feel like I’m more mature,” he said after his quarter-final win over Cristian Garín. “I think at the beginning of my career, if I made a third, a fourth or a quarter-final, I would be on my phone a lot, I would engage a lot online, I would want to go out to dinner…

“I feel like it’s literally as easy as resting. Like, ‘Nick, stay home. That hasn’t always been the easiest thing for me in my career.” Given the ups and downs of his career, it’s perhaps not too surprising that earlier this year Kyrgios had seemingly resigned himself to a career where he entertained in the early rounds of Grand Slam singles and aimed for the duplicate titles.

Partnering with friend Thanasi Kokkinakis at the Australian Open, “the Special Ks” drew raucous crowds and won a men’s doubles title that Kyrgios described as the “number one” achievement of his career. However, it was ultimately just a sideshow as Ash Barty ended the nation’s long wait for a singles title at Melbourne Park before retiring to nationwide cheers.

‘SAME GOAL’ Barty’s career was transformed when she built a team around her to deflect the pressure and it looks like Kyrgios may have taken a leaf from his book, although he still regularly berates his surroundings of the court.

“I think everyone has the same goal in my team, that’s why it works,” he said this week. “We all know what we came here to do. I let them know that I wanted to go far enough here and maybe even lift the trophy.”

If he manages to beat Novak Djokovic or Cam Norrie in Sunday’s final, it may be that winning tennis’ most prestigious title erases all his previous sins in the eyes of his compatriots. “I’ve softened up on Kyrgios,” columnist Darren Kane wrote in the Sydney Morning Herald on Friday.

“Not completely bother you (but) looking at things through any sort of lens, Kyrgios’ fiery misdeeds don’t really measure up on the atrocity meter.”

Motor racing-Albon feeling good for Austria after Silverstone smash

By Sports games

Williams driver Alex Albon said he was feeling well for Sunday’s Austrian Grand Prix after being taken to hospital for checks following a big crash at Silverstone last weekend. The British-born Thai said he was back in the team simulator on Wednesday after resting for a few days.

“I feel pretty much back to normal,” he told the team’s website (, explaining that he only had a few bumps and bruises. “I’m just taking it a step further with Patrick, my performance coach, and making sure I’m back in top form for Friday.

“Obviously it can seem quite dramatic when people go to hospital. But, to reassure everyone, I just went to do some precautionary checks. It’s really standard procedure.” Albon, who was thrown into the pit wall and across the track on the first lap by Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel, said he watched replays of his accident and attributed it to “one of those things”.

He added that the aero updates he first used at Silverstone appeared to be salvageable. Albon’s crash came seconds after a huge accident involving Chinese Alfa Romeo driver Guanyu Zhou who escaped unharmed after his car rolled over a wall of tires and crashed into a catch fence.

I know everything will be different in Uzbekistan: Dangmei Grace

By Sports games

Known for her pace and dribbling skills, Dangmei Grace knows that everything will be different and difficult during her time in Uzbekistan, where she aspires to be a “good ambassador” for Indian football.

The Indian striker recently fulfilled her dream of playing abroad by signing a professional contract with FC Nasaf of Uzbekistan.

”I know everything will be different in Uzbekistan — their style of play, the culture. I will have to adapt quickly and make new friends. But I am extremely enthusiastic about taking on this new challenge and sharing my experiences.

“It’s a dream come true for me,” Grace told the All India Football Federation (AIFF) website. ”It wasn’t an overnight dream for me. In fact, playing abroad has long been a dream. I dreamed a lot about that day. This is an opportunity for me to show my skills and be a good ambassador for Indian women’s football,” added the 26-year-old.

Grace started her international career in 2013 and won the South Asian Games (2016, 2019) and the SAFF Women’s Championships in 2016 and 2019. Domestically, she joined KRYPHSA FC and joined Sethu FC in 2018-19 before moving to Gokulam Kerala FC in the Indian Women’s League. She has two IWL triumphs to her name and an AFC Women’s Club Championship bronze medal last year.

”I want to share my experience as I played with the national team for many years. I want to explore myself here. I played three international matches against the Uzbekistan national team, and they are very tough,” she said.

The 2019 AIFF Emerging Player of the Year scored twice against Indonesia in the 2020 AFC Women’s Olympic Qualifiers, and most recently scored against Venezuela in India’s tour of Brazil.

“We are all extremely grateful for the exposure tours which made us confident as players, and also facilitated the popularity and growth of women’s football in India.

“Experience in international football is paramount, and the exhibition tours over the past few years have helped me enormously in my individual growth,” she said.

”My message to young girls will be, keep trying – anything can happen if you keep believing in yourself. Whatever challenges you face, don’t give up, keep trying until you reach your goal,” Grace concluded.

Food Network, Bermuda-style – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Guitarist Carlos Santana passed out on stage during an American concert

By Sports games

Veteran guitarist Carlos Santana passed out on stage at a US concert on Tuesday night after being overcome with heat exhaustion and dehydration. The Grammy Award winner, 74, was performing at the outdoor Pine Knob Music Theater in Clarkston, Michigan when the incident took place. A statement on his website says he was taken to the emergency room at McLaren Clarkston Medical Center for observation and is doing well.

“To all of you, thank you for your precious prayers. Cindy and I are doing well, taking it easy,” Santana wrote on his Facebook page, referring to his wife, drummer Cindy Blackman. “I forgot to eat and drink water so I got dehydrated and passed out, blessings and miracles to you all.”

Footage from the concert showed medical staff and other crew members huddled around Santana on stage. The statement quoted Santana’s manager, Michael Vrionis, as saying the guitarist’s concert on Wednesday in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania would be rescheduled for a later date.

Known for hits like “Black Magic Woman” and “Oye Como Va,” Mexican-born Santana, who shot to fame in the late 1960s with his band Santana, is currently on his “Miraculous Supernatural 2022” tour.

DSO Transmits Nagpur City School Sports Events to NMC, a civic body which is yet to be confirmed | More sports news

By Sports events

NAGPUR: Eight years after a Government resolution (GR) of 2014, the Departmental Sports Office (DSO) Nagpur asked Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) to organize the inter-school matches within the city limits in the next session.
While the DSO handed over responsibility for organizing matches for all 96 sports disciplines to NMC and issued a press release on Tuesday, the company, which does not have a fully-fledged sports department, has yet to confirmed its acceptance with the department.
Nagpur DSO Pallavi Dhatrak said in a statement that at the District Sports Council meeting held recently, District Collector R Vimala informed NMC to hold the inter-school matches for the 96 events within the city limits . “While NMC will host events for schools within city limits, the DSO will host games for schools outside of NMC boundaries,” Dhatrak said.
Caught off guard by the decision, NMC has yet to confirm the same and is facing a dilemma over staff shortages in their department. In a conversation with TOI, NMC Head of Sports Piyush Ambulkar said, “Like the DSO office, we at NMC do not have a full-fledged sports department. We don’t even have sports officials, coaches like the DSO office has. The commissioner of the NMC did not give his agreement for the same and we therefore did not give our confirmation on the organization of the matches.
Explaining further, Ambulkar said, “At the previous District Sports Council meeting, the same subject was discussed in detail with the then collector, Ravindra Thakre, who in turn directed the DSO to continue. to organize games for schools inside and outside the city limits. At this year’s meeting, the DSO did not confirm the minutes and did not communicate the decision taken at the previous meeting. And the decision was made in haste. I informed them that we will take the consent of the NMC commissioner and confirm it.
A sports officer from the DSO office told TOI that Mumbai and Pune municipal corporations organize matches within the city limits, so why can’t NMC organize them in Nagpur. While municipal corporations that organize sports tournaments have a special assistant director for sports, NMC has only two employees in sports, who report to the education department.

The top five sporting events in 2022 that Maltese will enjoy

By Sports events

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

1. The FIFA World Cup

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

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

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


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

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


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

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

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

4. Swimming

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

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

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

5. Basketball

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

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

Sports website apologizes to ‘any pundits we may have offended’ after Ursula Jacob spoke out about ‘nasty online abuse’

By Sports website

A sports news website released a statement after RTÉ GAA pundit Ursula Jacob accused him of including ‘nasty and tasteless’ comments about her in an article.

enchwarmers recently published an article with the title “Ursula Jacob comes to hammer on the board of the Sunday game”.

It included an embedded tweet and two Facebook comments, which the former Wexford camogie player described as obnoxious and personal.

Benchwarmers published an article today with the headline ‘Ursula Jacob hits back at online trolls’, and it said that all RTÉ pundits have come under heavy criticism on its website, whether male or women.

“While we probably shouldn’t give them wind, people are interested in comments online as well as on TV,” the article said.

“We apologize to Ursula or any of RTE’s experts whom we may have offended by reposting comments and opinions online that may have been negative for any of RTE’s panels.”

Ms Jacob said she was well aware that having a public platform brings criticism, but comments like these are “mean and personal”.

Writing on Twitter yesterday, she said: “Enough is enough.

“I usually never entertain and never give keyboard warriors an ounce of time or thought, but sometimes enough is enough and standing up for yourself is more important than just constantly putting up with nasty, tasteless comments from faceless cowards. .

“First of all, I’m a proud, proud Wexford woman, who also has a Wexford accent. Shock horror!

“I am and always will be proud of where I come from so I’m not going to start now or try to change my accent anytime soon.

“I am well aware that being on a public platform you are always open to debate and discussion, not everyone will always like you.

“I also have no problem with anyone disagreeing with the comments I make while working with RTE or on the Sunday game, it’s part and parcel of the job.

“What troubles me is an anonymous person or persons creating a page trying to create titles from scratch, facilitating nasty personal attacks and again targeting another expert or presenter.

“Have we seriously not just moved on or are we still stuck in the past?

“I have always been and will be proud of what I have achieved as a player, but I also know that I can support myself by working like an expert who knows both hurling and camogie.

“I’m not into symbolism or making numbers. I’m here because I have a voice and can give an informed and educated opinion.

“Fortunately for me, I’m a strong woman who has a brilliant support network who always supports me and who is super proud of me, but I would seriously encourage anyone who thinks of writing something nasty, tasteless or personal on someone on a social media platform to think before typing.

“At least I’m brave enough to stand up for myself on national television when a faceless coward has to hide behind a keyboard trying to promote nothing but pure nastiness and intimidation.

“But as my wise mother always told me ‘if they talk about you, they must be worried about you!’

“Finally, I would like to thank the overwhelming number of people who have continued to support me, their positivity will always be outside of the few narrow-minded individuals.”

Motor racing-Silverstone ‘perfect demonstration’ of F1 progress, says Brawn

By Sports games

The British Grand Prix provided a “perfect demonstration” of what Formula 1 was aiming to achieve with its 2022 cars and how much safer the sport has become, according to managing director Ross Brawn. The halo head protection system was credited with saving the life of Chinese driver Guanyu Zhou after a massive first-lap crash, while Sunday’s race at Silverstone featured close racing and thrilling overtaking.

Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz took the race for his first Formula 1 victory. “What I liked was the precision the drivers could have with the cars. We saw countless fascinating battles that took place over several corners, with multiple position changes,” Brawn said in a column on the F1 website (

“We saw that drivers could take multiple lines with these new cars – and it allowed two, three or even four cars to drive almost side by side. Passing quality was also high,” he added. Brawn, a former team boss and technical director, said the drivers had been positive about the change and the ability to closely follow the cars ahead without turbulence.

He said many had observed that they had a much better chance of forcing a mistake by being able to sit on another driver’s cue. “The frequency with which the cars follow for consecutive laps and challenge for consecutive laps is much better this year than in previous years,” Brawn said.

He said it showed that the sport and the management of the FIA ​​had moved in the right direction with the aero rule changes introduced this season to make racing closer and more exciting. “The introduction of traceability is going to be a significant change for F1 going forward,” Brawn said.

“If there is any legacy from that time, it will be that traceability will now be a factor that will always be taken into account when designing new cars for Formula 1. We have never seen this before.”

Rusty Eiffel Tower needs full repairs, reports say

By Sports games

The Eiffel Tower is riddled with rust and needs full repairs, but instead is getting a 60 million euro cosmetic paint job ahead of the 2024 Olympics in Paris, according to confidential reports cited by the French magazine Marianne. The 324 meter high wrought iron tower, built by Gustave Eiffel at the end of the 19th century, is among the most visited tourist sites in the world, welcoming around six million visitors each year.

However, confidential expert reports cited by Marianne suggest that the monument is in poor condition and riddled with rust. “It’s simple, if Gustave Eiffel visited the place, he would have a heart attack,” an anonymous tower official told Marianne.

The company that oversees the tower, Société d’Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel (SETE), could not immediately be reached for comment. The tower is currently undergoing a €60 million repaint in preparation for the 2024 Olympics, the 20th time the tower has been repainted.

About 30% of the tower was to be stripped and then have two new coats applied, but work delays caused by the COVID pandemic and the presence of lead in the old paint mean only 5% will be treated, Marianne said. SETE has been reluctant to close the tower for a long time because of the tourist revenue that would be lost, he added.

Changes to ‘crown jewel’ sporting events as part of the UK broadcasting review: an updated analysis of the UK’s listed events regime

By Sports events

Following the growing popularity and success of the Women’s Super League and the great form of the England women’s team, there is a real sense of anticipation and excitement as the Championship final approaches. UEFA Women’s Europe, which will be launched this Wednesday by the Lionesses of England. against Austria.

At the end of April, the UK government announced that the FIFA Women’s World Cup and the UEFA European Women’s Championship were to be protected by the UK regime from events listed as “crown jewel” events – attracting the same status in the UK Scheduled Events Regime as men’s events. Football World Cup and UEFA European Championships.

These ‘crown jewel’ events are considered events of national significance and in order to promote as wide an audience as possible, access to these events on free-to-air (FTA) television channels or services has been protected. by UK law listed event scheme.

In the light of these changes and also of the dissemination white paper Recently published by the UK Government in the review of public service broadcasting more generally, this article examines the background, recent changes and potential developments in the UK regime of listed events.

Background to the UK Listed Events Regime

The Broadcasting Act 1996 (there “Law“) provides the legislative basis for the UK regime of listed events.

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

The events listed are divided into 2 groups:

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

Recent Changes to Listed Events and Updated List

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

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

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

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

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

Which FTA services are eligible?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

Football-Arsenal signs striker Jesus from Manchester City

By Sports games

Arsenal have signed Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City to a long-term contract, the London Premier League club announced on Monday.

Financial details were not disclosed, but British media reported that the 25-year-old Brazil international had signed a deal worth 45 million pounds ($54.54 million). “I followed Arsenal when I was young because of (Thierry) Henry,” Jesus told the Arsenal website. “Obviously I haven’t followed too many European teams but when I saw some of the players playing here I thought ‘wow, this club is great’.

“When I played against Arsenal I was watching the Emirates and it was a very good stadium so I’m very excited to play here.” Jesus was surplus to City’s requirements after the Premier League champions signed Norwegian striker Erling Haaland from Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund.

The Brazilian netted 95 goals and 46 assists for City but failed to carve out a place in the starting line-up last season, netting eight league goals as manager Pep Guardiola deployed a midfielder as “false nine” to lead the attack. Arsenal manager Arteta is hoping Jesus can fill the hole in his side’s attack after none of his key forwards scored more than five league goals last season.

The Brazilian worked with Arteta when the Spaniard was Guardiola’s assistant at City from 2016 to 2019. “I’m very excited. The club have done a tremendous job signing a player of this stature,” Arteta said.

“I know Gabriel very well personally, and we all know him well from his time in the Premier League and his success here. It’s a position that’s been on our radar for a long time now and we managed to get a player that we all wanted. , so I’m really happy.”

Jesus is Arsenal’s fourth signing this summer following the arrivals of compatriot Marquinhos, United States goalkeeper Matt Turner and Portuguese attacking midfielder Fabio Vieira. He will compete for the centre-forward job at Arsenal alongside 23-year-old England international Eddie Nketiah, who agreed a long-term contract extension this month.

($1 = 0.8252 pounds)

Harmanpreet back in Melbourne Renegades WBBL colors

By Sports games

India captain Harmapreet Kaur will return to the Melbourne Renegades colors for a second season in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) at the eighth edition of the T20 tournament later this year. Harmanpreet, who has represented India in nearly 250 matches across all formats, is an all-around player renowned for her destructive hitting and practical off-spin. The 33-year-old was the Renegades’ top scorer and wicket taker in the WBBL last year. She scored 406 runs at an average of 58 – including 18 sixes, the most in the competition – and also claimed 15 wickets. “I’m thrilled to be coming back to the Renegades,” Harmanpreet said, as quoted by the Renegades website.

”I really enjoyed being part of the team environment last season and I feel like it helped me produce some of my best crickets. Personally, I just wanted to play my role for the team and it was nice to be able to do that.

”We supported each other as a team last year and were able to get some good results, but we still have a lot of room to improve. Hopefully we can do it, make the final again and put ourselves in a position to compete for the title,” she added. Mainly battling at number four, Harmanpreet won the Renegades game several times last season.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have Harmanpreet return to our club this summer,” said Melbourne Renegades chief executive James Rosengarten.

”Harmanpreet is one of the best players in the world, her record speaks for itself. She was exceptional for us last season and won the game on several occasions, having a prolific impact throughout the tournament with bat and ball.

“As an experienced player, Harmanpreet’s leadership and calm approach under pressure was a huge asset to our team. She was a perfect fit on and off the pitch and really fit into our team environment,” said he declared.

“After not being able to play in Melbourne last season, we know our fans will be thrilled to see Harmanpreet in action in the WBBL.”

Tennis-Djokovic ready to help his son follow in his footsteps

By Sports games

Novak Djokovic has said he will do everything in his power to support his son Stefan if he decides to follow in his footsteps, but the Serb wants to make sure the seven-year-old doesn’t feel pressured to pursue a career in tennis. Footage of the 20-time Grand Slam winner training with his son circulated on social media earlier this week and Djokovic also posted side-by-side photos of them hitting a forehand on Twitter, with the caption “so cool to see that”.

In May, Djokovic said his son won his first tournament on the same day he won the Italian Open, describing their success as a “double sun”. “I try to use every opportunity available…to play with him because he’s completely immersed in tennis right now,” Djokovic told reporters after his win over Tim van Rijthoven at Wimbledon on Sunday.

“All around tennis, how he can play, he watches, he analyses. I will support him in any way I can so he can be a professional tennis player…if he really wants to.” But it’s too early to talk about it, to be honest. He’s not even eight years old. It’s important to me that we have a father and son relationship…first and foremost, and that he enjoys life.”

Djokovic also said it was important for his son to be exposed to a variety of sports. “I think it’s very important to have, especially at this young age, a lot of stimulation for kids from different perspectives and different sports and different movements, different activities,” Djokovic said.

Six-time Wimbledon champion Djokovic will face Italy’s 10th seed Jannik Sinner in the quarter-finals.

Motor racing-Hamilton defends ‘Stop Oil’ protesters at British GP

By Sports games

Lewis Hamilton defended a group of ‘Just Stop Oil’ protesters who took to the track at Silverstone during Sunday’s British Grand Prix, but Formula 1 and Ferrari race winner Carlos Sainz said that they had put the pilots and their own lives in danger. Protesters raced onto the track after a massive first lap crash halted the race, but as cars were still moving.

Formula 1 boss Stefano Domenicali said they had been “totally stupid”. “You can protest all you want, it’s freedom of speech – but it’s really something… ridiculous, that’s the least I can say,” the Italian told Sky Sports TV .

British police had earlier said they had credible intelligence of a plan to disrupt the race. “I don’t know what the protest was for,” seven-time world champion Hamilton, who finished third for Mercedes, told reporters after initially saying “hugs to these guys”.

“I love people fighting for the planet and we need more people like them.” Sainz said he saw them running towards him and initially thought the run was flagged because of their action.

“Obviously people have to speak out and demonstrate where they want because it’s a right,” the Spaniard said. “I just don’t think jumping onto a Formula 1 track is the best way to do it and put yourself and all the other drivers in danger.”

Mercedes, which is sponsored by oil company Petronas and chemicals giant Ineos, later said Hamilton was not fully aware of the situation. “Lewis approved of their right to protest, but not the method they had chosen, which jeopardized their safety and that of others.”

A statement on says protesters are demanding an immediate halt to new oil and gas projects in the UK. With some 142,000 spectators descending on the circuit, located 90 minutes from London, the race is one of the sporting highlights of the British summer and has in the past attracted protesters.

Two years ago, police arrested four people after protesters unfurled a banner for climate action group Extinction Rebellion during the British Grand Prix. The race was then closed to spectators due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2003, Silverstone was the scene of one of Formula 1’s most bizarre and infamous protests when a man in a kilt ran down the track waving a banner saying: ‘Read the Bible, the Bible is always right.”

Irish women’s football coach Pauw says she was raped

By Sports games

Irish women’s football manager Vera Pauw has said she was raped by a ‘prominent football official’ in 1986 and sexually assaulted by two other men when she was a player in the Netherlands.

Pauw made the claims in a report published Saturday in respected Dutch newspaper NRC and in a statement she posted on Twitter. The culprit was not identified in Pauw’s statement or in the NRC story.

“Not even my relatives know about the rape I suffered at the hands of a prominent football official when I was a young player,” Pauw wrote. ”Later, two sexual assaults by two other men were added to this file. All three men were employed in Dutch football at the time of these incidents. The NRC wrote that the alleged rape happened at Pauw’s home in 1986. In an interview with the NRC, the coach said he was ‘stunned by the allegation’. and denied that a rape had taken place.

“Nothing inappropriate happened in this regard,” he told the newspaper.

Pauw also said that as a player and coach of the Dutch national team, she was exposed to “systematic sexual abuse, abuse of power, bullying, intimidation, isolation and frame-ups”. . In a written reaction published on its website, Dutch football association KNVB said it was “extremely shocked” by Pauw’s experiences, which it discussed with the association last year, discussions which led to a independent investigation.

The KNVB said the investigation “shows that the KNVB should have approached a number of issues differently”. For example, Vera has unfortunately faced a number of (judgment) errors and damaging comments from (former) KNVB employees in the past. KNVB behind this,” but said it is “unacceptable that Vera did not experience the safe working environment she was entitled to at the time. In personal contact with Vera, we have seen that this situation unfortunately has a profound impact on her and we are sorry for that.

“The FAI is absolutely aware of the impact these revelations will have on Vera’s well-being and has assured her of the full and continued support of the FAI Board and all of her Association colleagues,” did he declare.

Bundesliga: Scottish international Oliver Burke joins Werder Bremen

By Sports games

Scotland international Oliver Burke is back in the Bundesliga after agreeing with promoted side Werder Bremen. The 25-year-old returns to the German top flight after a five-year absence, having scored one goal in 25 league appearances for RB Leipzig in 2016/17.

Since then he has had spells at West Bromwich Albion, Celtic, Alaves, Sheffield United and Millwall, but will now miss out for the Greens and Whites in 2022/23. “It’s good to go back to the Bundesliga and join a big club like Werder Bremen,” Burke told his new team’s official website. “I was delighted to hear about the interest from Werder and I am now happy to be here. I want to help the team with the experience I have gained over the last few years. I will m train hard so that you can contribute to the success of the team.”

Burke started his career at Nottingham Forest, but his pace, dribbling ability and attacking mindset caught the eye of Leipzig, who signed him on a five-year deal in 2016. No less than 20 of his Bundesliga outings in 2016/17 were as a substitute, however, and Burke left at the end of the campaign, returning to the Midlands in England with West Brom.

Clemens Fritz, Werder’s head of scouting and professional football, explained: “Oliver has seen a lot in his career so far and with 110 appearances in the top divisions he certainly has experience. He is physically strong and fast, which will help our game.” Burke is one of several summer signings made by Bremen and head coach Ole Werner following their promotion from the Bundesliga 2 last season, including Amos Pieper and Niklas Stark, who are set to form a new centre-back pairing in as North German. the club is looking to re-establish itself in the front runners.

The best Switch-exclusive sports games

By Sports games

Whenever you feel like playing a sports game alone or with friends, the Nintendo Switch might not be the first console that comes to mind for stellar graphics and AAA titles. In fact, most licensed sports games, such as NHL and Madden, don’t even release on Nintendo’s hybrid unit.

Related: The weirdest sports in gaming

However, Nintendo never relied on third-party support for success. Although it doesn’t have some of the most successful titles in the industry on its platform, the company sidesteps this issue by releasing its own sports games, usually featuring Mario and his companions. The Nintendo Switch has more exclusive sports games than the PS5 and Xbox, but they can’t all be a hole in one.


seven Football slammers

Most exclusive sports games on Switch’s star Nintendo characters compete for glory. Soccer Slammers is one of the few exceptions, and it looks like it could have benefited from a cameo or some sort of twist.

This arcade-style football game features two-on-two matches, with boring gameplay and bland environments. It’s also incredibly light on content. It’s disappointing, because the director, Jools Watsham – who created the excellent Mutant Mudds series – was unable to adapt the charming aesthetics and engaging gameplay of these games to Soccer Slammers.

6 Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

Mario and Sonic began facing each other at the Olympics for the Wii, and the rivals still meet every few years for the next showdown. The two mascots, alongside their friends and foes, compete in events like baton twirling, boxing, and gymnastics to see who can take home the gold.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 excels at offering a wide variety of playable characters and events, but neither provides enough depth to really challenge you. The game is at its best when playing with friends, as the single player mode is very dry and playing against the CPU is equally mind-numbing. The inclusion of 16-bit events is fun for a while, but loses its appeal after playing it a few times.

Mario, Luigi and the rest of the team didn’t spend as much time playing football as they did tennis or golf. Most Mario sports games started on the NES or N64, but the first Mario Strikers game was released on GameCube in 2005, with a sequel coming to Wii a few years later.

Related: Every Mario Strikers: Battle League Character, Ranked

Over a decade later, Mario Strikers is back, and while it’s exciting to see its return, Battle League offers nothing new to the series and has even less content than its predecessors. The biggest change is the introduction of the gear system, which lets you customize a character with new clothes that also affect their stats. Next Level Games has been on a roll with the last two entries in Luigi’s Mansion, so it’s surprising to see them drop the ball with Mario Strikers: Battle League.

4 Mario Golf: Super Rush

Golf is generally a slower sport that many like to play with friends to relax and have a good time. The Mario Golf series has always been able to emulate a similar feeling, in the comfort of your own home. A colorful roster of characters and dozens of creative courses have long defined the series, and Mario Golf: Super Rush mostly continues to carry that torch.

Like other Mario sports titles for Switch, one of the major criticisms against Super Rush was its lack of content at launch. Over a year later, the game is still getting new content, but that wasn’t the only problem. Super Rush introduces a new mode, called Speed ​​Golf, where players race to see who can land their ball in the hole the fastest. This is again an interesting gimmick that quickly loses its appeal after just a few spins.

3 Mario The Aces of Tennis

When he’s not rescuing Princess Peach from Bowser or making a movie, Mario can usually be found partying, driving race karts, or playing tennis with his companions. The first time you got to see Mario on the court was on the Virtual Boy in 1995, and nearly three decades later his backswing has never been better.

After Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash for the Wii U failed to win over audiences, there was a lot of pressure on Mario Tennis Aces to restore the brand’s reputation. Thankfully, Aces fixes many of its predecessor’s issues by including tighter controls, fewer gimmicks, and a fun single-player campaign. It still lacks some of the multiplayer modes that helped make the N64 and GameCube versions infamous, but it’s still a great game to play alone or with friends.

2 Nintendo Switch Sports

It’s hard to believe it took Nintendo five years to release a spiritual successor to Wii Sports on Switch. The original is one of the most popular games of all time, and the Joy-Cons are perfect for replicating the simple, intuitive controls that were key to the success of Wii Sports.

Ranked: All Sports on Nintendo Switch Sports, Ranked

Nintendo Switch Sports includes familiar sports like tennis and bowling, while introducing sports like badminton and football. Unlike Wii Sports, you can compete against other players online and collect new clothes and emotes for your avatar. Other sports, such as golf, are expected to come out in the future, and if they’re as fun to play as today’s culture, then Nintendo Switch Sports has the potential to become an essential game for every Switch owner.

1 golf history

Golf Story was originally slated for release on Wii U. It was eventually delayed and, with the help of Nintendo, was released on Switch in 2017. Not only is Golf Story the first exclusive sports game on the console, but it’s still the the best and most convincing game in the range.

Golf Story is ultimately more than a sports game; it’s also an RPG full of fascinating characters and a fantastic story. It’s refreshing to mingle with the locals between rounds and spend your hard-earned cash on new gear and skills. Golf is intuitive, so it’s a great game even for people who aren’t familiar with the sport. Golf Story is often compared to Stardew Valley for its innovation in the simulation genre and aesthetic, and its unique concept makes it not only the best Switch-exclusive sports game, but one of the best games in its superb library. .

Hundreds attend cybersecurity webinars – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Around 400 local businesses attended the cybersecurity webinar series.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He added: “We have been pleased with the strong turnout and success of this webinar series.

Soccer-Bale set to join MLS side Los Angeles FC

By Sports games

Wales striker Gareth Bale appeared to confirm his move to Major League Soccer (MLS) club Los Angeles FC (LAFC) on Sunday following his departure from La Liga champions Real Madrid.

The 32-year-old, who signed for Spanish Premier League giants Real from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 for a then-record transfer fee of 100 million euros ($105.54 million), is expected to join as a a free agent with his contract due to end this summer. “See you soon Los Angeles,” Bale wrote in a post on Twitter, following the transfer news on Saturday. The post, which was retweeted on the official LAFC Twitter account, was accompanied by a video of Bale wearing an LAFC jersey and cap.

Bale enjoyed a trophy-laden spell with Real, winning three LaLiga titles, five Champions League crowns, three Club World Cups and the Spanish Cup, although his time at the club was marred by injuries . The Welshman will probably be best remembered for scoring twice, including a stunning header, in the 2018 Champions League final against Liverpool and also for scoring a stunning winner against Barcelona in the Copa del Copa final. Ray 2014.

But he was also often targeted by the Spanish media, who branded him a ‘parasite’ after missing Real’s 4-0 loss to Barcelona in March just before appearing for Wales, and he was mocked by some fans during a league game in April. . Bale led Wales to a first World Cup final since 1958 as they beat Ukraine 1-0 in their qualifier in Cardiff earlier this month.

He will join Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini who signed for LAFC this month following his departure from Juventus. The secondary transfer window in the United States opens on July 7, with a report on the official MLS website indicating that Bale and Chiellini could make their debuts against local rivals LA Galaxy the following day.

World Cup 2022 | Sports games

By Sports games

For all sports fans, the year 2022 is full of events of all kinds, but it is above all a good time for football fans. After 4 long years without the most anticipated football event, the time has finally come. From November 21 to December 18, Qatar will host the FIFA World Cup 2022. The World Cup was originally organized in 1930 and is now held every four years, making it the 22nd edition. This is the first World Cup to be held in an Arab country and just the second to be held in Asia, after the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea. Due to Qatar’s harsh summer weather, this will be the first time the tournament has been held so late in the year.

World Cup Duration

The tournament schedule is not long with a schedule of only 28 days. Four matches are played per day for 12 days during the group stage while when the tournament reaches the round of 16 there will only be two matches per day. The semi-finals and the final will be played on different days with only one match per day. Each match will last 90 minutes, with two 45-minute halves separated by a 15-minute interval. Extra time will be divided into two 15-minute sessions, with a 5-minute break between regular time and extra time. The extra time break is limited to one minute. If the score is still equal after extra time, penalties are given.

For the 2022 World Cup, Qatar has arranged to have eight different stadiums. These football stadiums are expected to cost three billion dollars in total. Qatar will design and implement environmentally friendly cooling technologies for the 2022 World Cup venues. Other countries may also use this technology. The planned stadiums will be reduced in size after the 2022 World Cup and will then be used as permanent venues for regional clubs.

Likely winner

France are the defending World Cup winners, having beaten Croatia in the final 4-2 to win their second World Cup championship. You would think that Italy could have been a great contender, having won the European Championships (EURO) 2020 only a year ago in 2021, after the EURO was postponed for a year due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. However, the Italian team failed to qualify for the World Cup for the second time in a row. Al Thumama Stadium will host the opening match and Lusail Stadium will host the World Cup Final. Natural grass will be used for 2022 World Cup matches. The World Football Association has a special waiver to allow the use of artificial grass.

At this point, Brazil are the favorites to win in Qatar. The Brazilian team has shown great promise with their incredible form and have recently won 13 consecutive matches overall. The Brazil team showed incredible fluidity in their style of play, but nothing compares to their outstanding defense during their winning streak.

Argentina, like Brazil, promised to win the entire tournament. With players like Lionel Messi and Marcos Senesi in defense, this team will not go down without a fight. For Lionel Messi, this World Cup could be the last of his career, so expect the player to be determined to bring the trophy home.

bet on the world cup

Like any other tournament, the world cup will attract many players who will try to make a fortune by winning through betting. Official sites like CasinoTop3 JP will publish the odds and the latest offers for betting on the world cup.

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

By Sports events

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

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

Small public beach

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

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

Numb and tired

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

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

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

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

Storms and hail

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

It wasn’t today either, but now I felt comfortable saying it. I wish it hadn’t been. a topic. I wanted to talk about my new career as an expert,” he said.

Fantasy Sports App Howzat: A platform to play online and earn daily rewards – Jammu Kashmir Latest News | Tourism

By Sports app

You may have grown up wanting to be the next Sachin Tendulkar or Mithali Raj or Virat Kohli. Sadly, no more than a few dozen players are on an Indian team at any one time, and hitting one is probably now harder than flying to the moon. But that doesn’t mean your cricketing dreams are over. They just need to take another form. A fantasy sports game app like Howzat gives you a bird’s-eye view of the action and helps you experience the real-time thrill players feel on the pitch. In a country where more than 13 million citizens now play at least one fantasy game, there are dozens of fantasy sports apps. So what sets Howzat apart and why should it be your preferred option? Here we look at some of the reasons.

There are several ways to add funds to your Howzat wallet – through net banking, UPI, cards and other means.

If it’s a sport or tournament you’re not very familiar with, these practice games, where you can enter up to 40 different teams in a contest, are a real hit. inch. Trying out different combinations will help you understand that fantasy sports aren’t quite the same as the real deal. If you want play fantasy cricket and win real money, the type of XI you choose will be markedly different from a traditional cricket team. It may not have any opening hitters, or it may be filled with all-rounders. Either way, you have the kind of leeway and flexibility that actual cricket selectors don’t have.

Cricket is not the only sport

Since the pan-Indian following cricket enjoys, it is only natural that the majority of Howzat users participate in cricket-based contests. But there’s more to the app than that. The Indian Kabaddi League also attracts a loyal following, and during the roughly two months that it is played, thousands of users also select their fantasy kabaddi 7. The competitions are now expanding to the Yuva Kabaddi League as well.

Similarly, Howzat allows you to participate in contests based on football matches played in many countries.

Later in the year there will also be competitions based on the World Cup.

So what are you waiting for? Download the Howzat app, register, create your teams and play. We promise, you’ll never look at sport the same way again!

It’s time for Mario Sports games to go free

By Sports games

Every time a Mario sports game has released over the past decade, it’s seemingly the same story. Players benefit from a solid core experience rooted in highly refined sports gameplay. The problem? There aren’t many compelling reasons to play due to the thin feature lists. We saw it in Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, Mario Sports Superstars, Mario Golf: Super Rushand now again in Mario Strikers: Battle League.

The latter is arguably the most egregious offender to date. While it features some of the most complex and nuanced Mario sports gameplay to date, it is sorely lacking in game modes. Rather than including challenges and mini-games to test players’ skills, there are three options: Freeplay, a small set of tournaments and online play. All of this can be enjoyed single-player, but it feels very much like a first-time multiplayer experience built around its standout online “club” mode.

It’s a tough sell for a $60 game, but the format may be the problem. Of all Nintendo’s series, Mario sports games could benefit from a more modern approach by adopting a free-to-play model. The tricky part is making sure it’s done the right way.

Less is good

What’s funny about a game like Mario Strikers: Battle League is that it has about as much content as other modern titles. It’s not unusual for a multiplayer-focused game to launch with a tight mode and later expand it with updates. We already know that battle league will get DLC, bringing more characters to the roster. The difference between this game and something like Apex Legends comes down to the initial purchase.

Due to the nature of their $0 pricing, free games have a lot more flexibility than full retail games. It doesn’t matter how rare the package is when players download it for free. Successful free-to-play multiplayer games tend to hook players with an immediately fun experience that feels like stealing and earn their money later by selling bonuses (a tactic that some games tend to abuse).

In contrast, gamers expect the full experience right off the bat if they pay full retail price for a game – and that’s what Nintendo is struggling with right now. Recent Mario sports games (and even Nintendo Switch Sports) feel almost inspired by free-to-play design, putting more effort into creating solid inline hooks that will keep players engaged. Additional content usually comes later, long after the average gamer has moved on to the next hot game.

Take Mario Golf, for example. Nintendo GameCube Title Mario Golf: Poison Mushroom Tour featured four main single-player modes, a dozen multiplayer options, a handful of minigames, and unlockables that players could pursue long term. Last years Mario Golf: Super Rush launched as a much slimmer package with a quick story mode and three main multiplayer options. It would add new features over time, but it was hard to shake off the feeling that Nintendo had missed the green with its release strategy.

A game of Battle Golf in Mario Golf: Super Rush.

If Nintendo continues to scale back its multiplayer games in this way, a free-to-play pivot looks like a win-win move. This would allow the company to focus on building solid multiplayer experiences that don’t need to launch with the wealth of content fans have come to expect from previous Mario sports titles or $60 games. It would help games like Mario Strikers: Battle League finding a wider audience that could be hooked to the game’s superior football systems through its club mode.

It would be an unprecedented decision for Nintendo, but not for the industry as a whole. This month both Knockout City and Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout pivoted to a free-to-play model. Both games are great multiplayer titles that struggled to retain their audience after being offered free to players initially, but they sold out in the long run. The much larger example is Infinite Halo, which went free-to-play with its multiplayer and sold its campaign separately. It continues to be a winning strategy for some of gaming’s most profitable franchises, so why shouldn’t Mario get in on the action too?

Nintendo’s Cash Cow

There’s a simple answer to why Nintendo wouldn’t make a Mario game, sports or otherwise, free: they make too much money. Mario is a constant cash cow for Nintendo, who can seemingly turn any game featuring the plumber into gold. If Nintendo was experimenting with a free-to-play model, it would have to find a way to recoup what it would have earned by simply launching a $60 game that it rarely offers.

This is where the downside of the business model comes in. Free games get a bad rap with some gamers for their sometimes aggressive use of microtransactions. For every game that only charges for cosmetics, there’s another that creeps uncomfortably closer to pay-to-win territory, As pokemon unite.

Pokemon Unite's Zirco Trading Menu

Nintendo’s previous attempts at free play have been mixed in terms of their monetization success. There was the ill-fated Wii U Wii Sports Club, which charged users a daily fee to play. Other free Switch titles like Pokemon Quest and Super Kirby Clash haven’t exactly been big earners for Nintendo, although he’s had more success with Fire Emblem Heroesa mobile game that uses “gacha” mechanics.

I imagine a free-to-play Mario sports game might charge players for new characters rather than giving them away for free, which seems reasonable, although there is also potential danger. Some Mario sports titles feature unlockable gear, like golf clubs, that can boost player stats. Locking those behind a paywall could be what cracks the thin ice the series is already standing on.

It’s risky, but a change of form is in order. Mario sports games have been in steady decline since 2015 and Mario Strikers: Battle LeagueThe lack of content is a worrying sign for the future of the series. A bold step into the free-to-play arena could allow Nintendo to stay competitive in a crowded modern scene and reclaim its position as the king of multiplayer.

Bundesliga: Christopher Nkunku signs contract extension from RB Leipzig until 2026

By Sports games

Christopher Nkunku has signed a two-year contract extension at RB Leipzig, keeping him at the Bundesliga club until 2026.

To date, he has made 136 competitive outings for the club, contributing 47 goals in 93 direct goal appearances.

He made his senior international debut for Didier Deschamps’ France side against Ivory Coast in March this year, and has since won five other caps, including two starts.

“We are proud and happy to have been able to keep one of the best players in the world at this time,” said Leipzig technical director Christopher Vivell. “There are only a few players who can match the speed, flair and mentality that Christo possesses. On top of that comes his incredible goal involvement this season. Christo became one of the best Bundesliga players at Leipzig and also became a regular in the France team. This success story is something we want to keep writing together.”

Nkunku’s new contract, which replaces the previous one which was due to expire in June 2024, is a major boost for Leipzig and head coach Domenico Tedesco as they look to meet the title challenge in 2022/23. The announcement comes just days after the club confirmed the signing of Austrian international Xaver Schlager from Wolfsburg. (ANI)

The sports world unites for Olympic Day

By Sports games

The Olympic Movement is preparing to celebrate Olympic Day, which this year invites athletes, Olympians and people around the world to come together and show their united support for a peaceful world. Celebrated on June 23 every year since 1948, Olympic Day offers everyone the opportunity to come together and move with determination.

This year, as the world continues to seek unity, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Olympic Movement are highlighting the power of sport to build a better world, bringing people together in peace. As part of this, citizens are encouraged to move together for peace on Thursday through a range of local physical and digital activities. More than 135 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) have already shown their commitment to Olympic Day by organizing activities such as Olympic Day races, outdoor games for families, introductions to new sports, meetings with Olympians and workshops on the Olympic values. Digital initiatives, such as virtual Olympic challenges, online workouts, live virtual chats with Olympians, online quizzes and Olympic values ​​webinars, will also be held around the world.

The idea of ​​celebrating an Olympic Day was adopted at the 42nd IOC Session in St Moritz, in January 1948. The date chosen celebrates the founding of the IOC at the Sorbonne, Paris, on June 23, 1894, where Pierre de Coubertin revived the Olympic Games. The first Olympic Day was celebrated that same year on 23 June 1948 and, 30 years later, in the 1978 edition of the Olympic Charter, the IOC recommended that all NOCs organize an Olympic Day to promote the Olympic Movement.

Over the past 20 years, Olympic Day has often been associated with Olympic Day races around the world. First launched in 1987, the races aimed to encourage all NOCs to celebrate Olympic Day and promote the practice of grassroots sport. To celebrate Olympic Day, the NOCs offer a wide range of sporting, cultural and educational activities for everyone, regardless of age, gender, social origin or sporting ability.

Every celebration in every country is different. While more than 100 countries organize their own Olympic Day Run every year, the IOC also invites NOCs to create their own Olympic Day activities. NOCs from every continent continue to find new and exciting ways for athletes and Olympians to come together with schools, families and the general public to explore the Olympic values, discover new sports and get moving. Some countries have incorporated the event into school curricula, and in recent years many NOCs have added concerts and exhibitions to the celebration.

From Austria to Venezuela, nine countries took part in the first Olympic Day in 1948. Since those humble beginnings, a total of 170 NOCs around the world have held Olympic Day celebrations in recent years. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, more than three million people in 116 countries celebrated Olympic Day in 2021. (ANI)

Rays games available (paid) on the new Bally Sports app

By Sports app

ST. PETERSBURG — Starting Friday, everyone in Tampa Bay can watch the Rays.

This includes residents who have Frontier Cable. This includes cable cutters that rely on YouTube TV or Hulu. This includes anyone willing to pay the $19.99 monthly fee for the new Bally Sports+ app.

The long-awaited app that bypasses traditional cable companies and streaming services to connect directly to consumers is getting a nationwide soft launch with Tampa Bay as one of five markets that will provide local MLB broadcasts from Thursday. (The Rays are off, so the first available game will be against the Pirates on Friday night.)

Overall, the app targets younger viewers who avoid cable TV and are used to paying for pay-per-view programming.

But in Tampa Bay, the app will also appeal to Frontier Communications customers. Because Frontier and Bally Sports did not agree on fees, cable service customers have, for the most part, been locked out of Rays and Lightning games in recent seasons.

“We’re looking forward to launch and our fans will have another way to watch our games,” Rays president Matt Silverman said.

The Rays are part of the launch (along with the Royals, Tigers, Marlins and Brewers) as they included broadcast rights in their latest deal with Bally Sports. The Rays are not getting any additional revenue from the new app.

Viewers can either pay for the Bally Sports+ app on a monthly basis at $19.99 or annually for $189.99, which equals $15.83 per month. There is also a seven-day free trial.

Bally, part of the Sinclair Broadcast Group, has streaming deals with just five MLB teams. This soft launch is therefore designed to resolve issues before offering games to all NHL and NBA teams in the fall.

A Tampa Bay viewer who pays the annual subscription will receive all Rays broadcasts on Bally Sports Sun as well as all available Lightning games for the 2022-23 season. It has not yet been determined whether the Orlando Magic will be included in the Tampa Bay package due to scheduling differences between Bally Sports Sun (Rays and Lightning Network) and Bally Sports Florida (Magic and Marlins).

Whether the cord cutters will be willing to pay the extra $19.99 for a specialty sports network remains to be seen.

Earlier this month, sports network NESN began rolling out the first direct-to-consumer app with Red Sox and Bruins games available for $29.99 per month, with a promotional offer of $1 for the first month. The annual NESN package costs $329.99 and includes eight Red Sox tickets. reported last week that early adopters of NESN services had encountered problems accessing connected TV.

The Bally Sports app can be viewed on the web, Android TV, Apple TV, mobile (iOS/Android) and Amazon Fire. More platforms are expected to be added after the MLB All-Star Game in July.

“We are thrilled to offer a new way for local fans to watch Rays games,” Bally Sports Sun general manager Steve Tello said in a statement. “Bally Sports+ is specifically designed for the local cord-cutter and for fans looking for an easy and direct way to watch their favorite teams. This marks the first availability of the service, with a wider launch coming this fall which will include the Lightning.

The new app won’t change anything for viewers who already have Bally Sports through Spectrum or DirectTV.

Tennis-Kyrgios is the first to sign with Osaka sports agency Evolve

By Sports games

Nick Kyrgios on Monday became the first athlete to join Evolve, the new sports agency co-founded by four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka.

Osaka broke up with IMG last month to launch Evolve with longtime agent Stuart Duguid. Evolve describes itself as a multi-faceted agency focused on brand partnerships, investing, building athlete-owned businesses and philanthropy. “Kyrgios epitomizes the types of athletes we want to work with at Evolve,” Osaka told sports business website Boardroom.

“He has an unrivaled style, passion and personality that is unlike anyone else in the sport. We have big things in the works for him that are very unique and groundbreaking.” Duguid called the fiery and controversial Kyrgios the most talented and entertaining tennis player on the tour.

The world number 45 is one of the sport’s biggest draws thanks to the unpredictable nature of his matches. While the hugely talented Aussie often confuses his opponents with an incredible range of blows, his antics on the pitch and clashes with referees have often made headlines. “Love him or hate him, you definitely can’t take your eyes off him. If you go to a junior tennis tournament, you’ll see Nick’s influence,” he said.

“For Gen Z and younger, he’s absolutely the icon.” The great Kyrgios, 27, won the Australian Open doubles title in January. He has won six singles titles on the ATP Tour.

Motor racing-Montreal winner as Formula 1 returns

By Sports games

Absent from the Formula 1 calendar since 2019, the Canadian Grand Prix was back in race mode on Sunday to the delight of drivers, fans and business owners who had missed the fast-paced action on the circuit during its enforced COVID-19 break.

Every time the F1 circus pitches its tent in a city, the drivers roll out well-rehearsed platitudes, but there’s always been a sense of sincerity when it comes to Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, a high-speed track on Ile Notre – Lady in the middle of the St. Lawrence River. “It’s such a great place, obviously one of my favorite circuits, one of the oldest that’s still on the calendar and it’s quite special,” said Esteban Ocon of Alpine. “It’s great to see the city completely transform into racing mode.”

As drivers missed out on the Canadian Grand Prix, local businesses were heartbroken. The race is not only one of the hottest sporting events in Canada, but it has become a week-long festival of high-octane fun that has boosted the economy of the Montreal area.

The Société du parc Jean-Drapeau, Tourisme Montréal and the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Canada published earlier this year, according to Radio-Canada, a study which concluded that the economic impact of the event on the gross domestic product ( GDP) was $63.2 million (CDN). Interest in this year’s race exploded after the NetFlix documentary series ‘Drive To Survive’ provided a behind-the-scenes look at F1’s personalities and rivalries – with people locked down during the frenzy of the COVID-19 pandemic. 19 watching episodes.

“You can feel people love Formula 1, you can see there are a lot of Formula 1 fans,” said AlphaTuari team principal Franz Tost. “Of course it’s part of the story. Canada has a fantastic history in Formula 1 with Gilles Villeneuve and with other Formula 1 drivers.”

Mother Nature didn’t really welcome F1 in Montreal as Friday practice and Saturday qualifying were rocked by thunderstorms and driving rain. But the weather for Sunday’s race was near perfect, giving the sold-out crowd a good return on their expensive investment as Red Bull championship leader Max Verstappen held off a challenge from Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz to extend his advantage in the standings.

Racing fans have blocked worries of soaring gas prices and inflation by opening their wallets to secure a place on the circuit. Tickets for Sunday’s race at resale venues weren’t for the faint-hearted, with general admission costing over $500 while VIP suites topped $10,000.

Hotels were also cashing in with rooms averaging over $500 a night while AirBnB was charging $1,000 to $4,000 a day for a downtown condo. Restaurants and bars, especially those operating on pedestrian-only streets like Crescent and Peel, were the heart of the party, with the fun extending well into the early hours.

“I wasn’t going to miss it,” said Toronto’s Tom, who admitted to having a nursing hangover as he headed to the track on Sunday. “I spent enough to buy a car but it’s worth it.”

By Sports events

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Add reminders in your vehicle– Put your purse, wallet or mobile phone in the back seat. This way you are reminded to look in the back seat before leaving the vehicle. You can also keep a stuffed animal in your child’s car seat. When the child is with you, put it in the front seat to remind you that your child is in the back.

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

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

1. Battery

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

2. Engine coolant

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

3. Tires

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

4. Engine fluids

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

5. Air conditioning

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

Be prepared for summer blackouts

Even with proper preventive maintenance, summer breakdowns can still occur. AAA recommends that every driver have a well-stocked emergency kit in their vehicle. Kit should include extra flashlight and fresh batteries, first aid supplies, drinking water, non-perishable snacks for people and pets, car battery jumper cables, flares or emergency reflectors, rain poncho, basic tool kit, duct tape, gloves, and shop rags or paper towels.

Hardik hails Karthik after Rajkot heroism, calls him an inspiration

By Sports games

All-round Indian star Hardik Pandya has expressed his admiration for Dinesh Karthik, saying his resurrection from obscurity is an inspiration to many inside and outside the team.

The veteran wicketkeeper smashed his first T20I fifty to help the hosts claim an 82-point victory over South Africa in the fourth T20 International here on Friday.

In a conversation with Karthik, the video of which was uploaded by BCCI to its website, Hardik recalled his past conversations with the veteran campaigner, who is going through a dream race with the bat. “I have to tell you this, sincerely I want to tell you this, you have given a lot of inspiration to a lot of guys in their lives. “I remember the conversation you had when you weren’t in the scheme of things, a lot of people counted you out,” Hardik told Karthik during the chat.

India were struggling at 81/4 in the 13th when substitute skipper Pant was dismissed for 17. This brought Karthik and Hardik together and the pair restarted Indian innings with a dynamic partnership of 65 runs.

”I remember those conversations. You told me then that my goal was to play for India again and the goal was to play in this World Cup, I’m going to give it my all, and to see you achieve that is very inspiring. ”A lot of people will learn new things. Well done brother, very proud of you,” Hardik added.

Karthik broke nine fours and two sixes in his entertaining 55 run, Hardik hit 46 of 31 to back up the Indian innings. The series decider will be played at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday.

NSoft’s Three Most Popular Virtual Sports Games

By Sports games

Virtual sports games feature industry best practices. The games are very engaging and well accepted by bettors. Still, some stars shine brighter, and Greyhound Races, Virtual Football League, and Virtual Horse Races are the most popular virtual sports games.

Virtual sports betting games have established themselves as engaging content across all channels. If you search on Google virtual sports, you might often find results like: “virtual sports fill the gap between sports seasons”. But these games are more than just a filler episode in the settings of the betting operator, whether land-based or online. A simple look at the games available in the market says a lot about their popularity.

Features and Technology Behind Virtual Sports Betting

Technologies such as motion capture have taken virtual sports betting to another level. The ability to record the movement of objects and people and play them back in a virtual world has been a game-changer in the movie and gaming industry. Betting providers are no exception for the content they create in this niche. Virtual football, basketball, tennis and horse racing are as exciting and lively as real matches and races. The games use dynamic camera angles, commentary and crowd cheers to keep the flair alive and drive the excitement expected of real tournaments. The available markets are identical or very similar to the betting options offered by sportsbooks.

The seriousness of the game providers indicates that one can find games created in partnership with real sports associations.

RNG Driven Games

RNG drives virtual sports betting. A random number generator (RNG) and given odds determine the results of virtual bets. The RTP (Return to player) rate depends on the type of race/sport and available markets.

Virtual sports betting is not exclusively CGI

Virtual sportsbooks using real images instead of CGI (computer-generated images) are just as attractive, if not more popular, than animations for some racing games – dog racing, for example. NSoft offers two dog racing games – Virtual Greyhound Races with CGI and Greyhound Races, which use real images. Although the mechanics of the game and the betting markets are the same, players are more engaged in the game which offers real racing videos. This trend applies to almost all countries where our two games are available regardless of the distribution channels.

The three best virtual sports games

NSoft offers nine virtual sports games in its virtual sports betting catalog. The games cover the most popular racers and sports in the industry. Most of them are available for all channels, including mobile apps and terminals. The games feature industry best practices and are highly engaging and well accepted by punters. Still, some stars shine brighter, and Greyhound Races, Virtual Football League, and Virtual Horse Races are NSoft’s top three by ticket count. This also fits the betting industry in general.

Greyhound racing

NSoft offers two dog racing games. The one that features real images has always been the first choice for operators and gamers. The game is available for retail, online, on mobile apps and at betting terminals. Greyhound Races game combines the best of both worlds: an exciting pre-recorded race and a background RNG. The bettor has the choice between several markets: which dog, out of six on the racetrack, will win, who will be the winner and the second, the first three dogs to cross the finish line, etc.

The game also shows a circuit diagram when viewing the race. At the end of the race, the game features always fire just before the race results for that lap.

The game is enriched with statistics showing the results of several previous races and statistics on dogs by market.

Virtual Football League

The most popular sport in the world is football (soccer), followed by basketball and cricket. Football has the largest fan base, so it is no wonder that the virtual football betting game is also popular among bettors. In terms of betting experience, no one questions the primacy of real offers and betting for the favorite football club in a major league. Yet virtual football comes close to that kind of excitement. Although virtual sports betting is usually a type of betting made on computer-simulated sports and events, game results are determined by RNG software which is also used for casino games or virtual number betting. The virtual soccer betting game has kept a sports betting flair.

The game is fast-paced, runs 24/7, matches will not be rescheduled due to rain, and bettors enjoy the opportunities the game offers in terms of markets and availability.

At NSoft, the number of tickets in May 2022 was 18.5% higher than in December 2021. Several competition formats are available in the Virtual Football League provided by NSoft. The betting game is available for web, mobile apps and retail.

Virtual horse racing

The game mechanic in the Virtual Horse Races game is the same as used in dog racing. NSoft Horse Racing features eight competitors in a virtual racetrack. Bettors have a choice of six market options. The duration of the round is configurable and can be shortened, especially for the online channel and mobile app game versions.

Honorable mention: Virtual penalty shootout

Virtual Penalty Shootout is NSoft’s first game made using mocap technology. NSoft’s internal team developed a confrontation between the goalkeeper and the penalty taker. Head-to-head play offers goal and non-goal bet types with multiple betting options.

What else virtual sports betting has to offer

Virtual sports betting continues to grow. It certainly won’t overtake Sportsbook or Casino content, occupying the 1st and 2nd position respectively in terms of popularity, but it’s definitely the one that’s here to stay. Motion capture technology, CGI combined with live filmed environments to provide a realistic and immersive racing experience, or the use of real footage has enhanced the player experience and popularized virtual sports betting games.

Most providers offer customization options so that operators can adjust the scenery according to preferences and meet the expectations of bettors. If the most famous clubs in the country have white/blue and white/red jerseys, it is almost certain that virtual football or the penalty will also sport these mentioned colors.

Barcelona members approve sale of TV rights and merchandising

By Sports games

Barcelona members have approved a plan to sell some of the team’s television rights and future merchandise and licensing revenue in hopes of injecting 600 million euros ($631 million) immediately in the debt-ridden Spanish club.

Club chairman Joan Laporta said the two measures were necessary to “generate profits and have positive equity” after two seasons of failure to make major signings due to crippling debt which has swelled to at one point at 1.3 billion euros (nearly $1.37 billion).

Selected club members, known as delegates, voted Thursday night online to overwhelmingly support the two financial measures presented by Laporta.

The first is the sale of 49% of the company that Barcelona operate to negotiate their licensing and merchandising rights. The club hopes to get between 200 and 300 million euros ($210-315 million) in return. Laporta said he would only listen to offers that included a buyout option so the club could regain full control of those assets at a later date.

The second measure is the sale of up to 25% of TV rights revenue from Spanish league matches over 25 years, for which the club has said it hopes to earn around 450 million ($473 million).

Laporta compared his struggling club to a Formula 1 racing car in need of a complete overhaul. He said these two financial deals will mean “the F1 car can leave the pits and return to the front row of the grid to compete and win again”. Laporta and other board members did not reveal any details about the deals or potential buyers when questioned by delegates.

Barcelona’s financial moves come months after it refused, along with Real Madrid, to participate in an investment scheme from the CVC Capital Partners fund secured by the Spanish league to help clubs post-pandemic.

The huge wages and transfer fees paid by Laporta’s predecessor Josep Bartomeu are blamed for ruining Barcelona’s finances. The loss of income caused by the pandemic has only made the situation more dire, to the point where the club was unable to resign all-time goalscorer Lionel Messi last summer even though he was willing to cut his salary.

Barcelona ended last season without a title.

The league has reduced Barcelona’s salary cap to seven times lower than that of Real Madrid due to the team’s dilapidated finances. He hasn’t made any significant signings this offseason and is working to get his players to take another pay cut.

Blatter and Platini face 20 months suspended prison sentence

By Sports games

Prosecutors in the fraud trial of former FIFA president Sepp Blatter and vice-president Michel Platini requested on Wednesday that the pair be given 20-month suspended prison sentences.

Blatter and Platini, a former France national team captain who was president of European governing body UEFA, were sentenced to up to five years for financial misconduct, but the actual prison sentence was considered unlikely ahead of their 11-day trial. Verdicts are expected on July 8.

Blatter’s 86-year-old legal danger deepened on Wednesday when prosecutors in FIFA’s hometown of Zurich confirmed to The Associated Press that they had opened criminal charges against him in a separate complaint. filed by the world football body in 2020.

Blatter and his longtime right-hand man, former FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke, are now official suspects in an investigation into allegations of mismanagement over the FIFA World Football Museum project in the center of Zürich. The new details were first reported by a Swiss financial news site.

Earlier on Wednesday at the Swiss Federal Criminal Court in Bellinzona, prosecutor Thomas Hildbrand also asked Platini’s three judges to pay FIFA more than 2.2 million Swiss francs (2.2 million USD) in compensation.

Blatter and Platini deny fraud and lesser charges related to a FIFA-approved $2 million payment to the French great in 2011. At the time, Platini was UEFA president, FIFA vice-president and was supposed to succeed Blatter, probably in 2015.

Platini said in a statement released after the hearing that he was “calm and confident”. “The prosecutor’s indictment today lacks any basis,” Platini said. “The proceedings of the trial proved that this criminal procedure had no reason to exist”. FIFA also paid $229,000 in social security contributions to Zurich.

Both have long denied wrongdoing and claim to have reached a verbal agreement in 1998 for Platini to receive extra salary which FIFA could not pay at the time. Platini signed a contract in August 1999 to be paid 300,000 Swiss francs ($300,000) per year.

Their defense previously failed before the FIFA Ethics Committee, which banned them from football and removed them from their positions, the FIFA Appeals Committee, and then in separate appeals before the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Blatter said FIFA correctly accounted for the money and Platini claimed the allegation came to light in September 2015 to prevent him from campaigning to become FIFA president.

In June 2015, Blatter announced his intention to step down early as president following an extensive US corruption probe. A separate but cooperating case from Swiss prosecutors led to the investigation into Platini’s payment.

Blatter and Platini testified last week and both are expected to make closing statements at the end of the trial on June 22.

Two federal and one cantonal criminal proceedings are currently underway against Blatter and Valcke.

FIFA has asked Zurich prosecutors to review the $140 million renovation of a downtown Zurich building for a museum long considered a pet Blatter project that opened in 2016. The loss-making museum is linked to a long-term rental by FIFA of apartments and offices on the site belonging to the insurance company Swiss Life.

Blatter’s lawyers said 18 months ago the museum’s allegations were “baseless and vehemently denied”. The suspects are Blatter, Valcke and former FIFA chief financial officer Markus Kattner, who testified in court on Tuesday about Platini’s payment.

The loan was later canceled and effectively offered football money to then-FIFA vice-president Jack Warner, weeks before he was to stand as a candidate in the Caribbean islands general election. Warner then became a government minister.

Valcke is also awaiting a verdict from the federal appeals court in Bellinzona after a retrial in March on charges related to the use of a Qatari-owned villa in Sardinia and World Cup broadcasting rights. The three defendants include director of football and broadcasting Nasser al-Khelaïfi, the president of French champions Paris Saint-Germain. PA SSC SSC

Football-Haaland fever intensifies as City announce signing

By Sports games

After five goals in four Nations League games for Norway, interest in striker Erling Haaland is at an all-time high as he was unveiled as a Manchester City player in what will be one of the most big transfers at the end of the English season.

In early May, the Premier League champions announced they would buy the 21-year-old from Borussia Dortmund, and everything he’s done since has stoked speculation about what he can achieve in the Premier League. Haaland finished the Bundesliga season with 22 goals before joining the Norway team and scoring the only goal in a 1-0 away win against Serbia.

He scored twice as his side beat Sweden 2-1, their first win against the Swedes in a competitive game since 1977, then posted a photo of him as a child in a Manchester City kit on Instagram with the caption, ” To be continued”. ..” After missing out on a goalless draw with Slovenia, Haaland ended the season at a sold-out Ullevaal Stadium in Oslo, scoring twice and providing an assist for the other goal in a 3- 2 against the Swedes which leaves Norway at the top of the Group B4 standings after four games at 10 points.

“There’s not much more to say, what he did today speaks for itself,” Norway captain Martin Odegaard told reporters after the second win against Sweden. “Two goals and an assist, and the job he did too. He did the dirty work for the team and that says a lot about him,” added the Arsenal playmaker.

The big talk will be whether Haaland – a classic and powerful centre-forward – can fit into a Pep Guardiola system at City that often eschews traditional forwards. Haaland declined to answer media questions about Manchester City during his spell with the national team, with the transfer being announced a day after Norway’s international break ended.

“He’s one of the best strikers in the world, it will be fun to follow him in the Premier League,” Sweden’s Dejan Kulusevski, who plays for Tottenham Hotspur, told reporters. Born in the English city of Leeds, Haaland said he will now go on holiday after a tiring campaign but will no doubt return to the headlines once he trains with his new club.

“I’m looking forward to autumn. Let it come,” he told the Norwegian FA website (

Our top tips for sporting events

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

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

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

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

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

How to buy football tickets

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

Through the club

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sports ticket sites

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

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

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

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

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

Ticket exchange

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

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

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

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

What about football tickets outside England?

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

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

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

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

Finnish Supreme Administrative Court Rules Skill-Based Fantasy Sports Games Belong To Veikkaus Monopoly – European Gaming Industry News

By Sports games
Reading time: 2 minutes

Article written by Antti Koivula, legal counsel consultant at Legal Gaming

On May 24, 2022, the Finnish Supreme Administrative Court delivered its judgment on IS-Liigapörssi-case (KHO:2022:60), in which the Supreme Administrative Court analyzed whether skill-based fantasy sports games fall within the scope of the Finnish Lotteries Act (1047/2001) (“Lotteries Act”) and therefore belong to the public gambling operator Veikkaus Oy’s (“Veikkaus“) monopoly.

Finland has implemented a legal gambling monopoly, under which Veikkaus has the exclusive right to operate and market gambling. According to the Lotteries Act, all games that include participation fees, prizes with a monetary value and the outcome of which is based on chance fall within the monopoly of Veikkaus. The main issue in the case was whether it was sufficient for the game to be even remotely based on chance to fall within the scope of the Lotteries Act and thus belong to the Veikkaus monopoly, and whether such was the case, if the element of chance was present in the skill-based fantasy sports games in question.

IS-Liigapörssi-the case concerned fantasy sports games popular in Finland, in which participants formed virtual ice hockey teams from real ice hockey players and points were awarded based on the performance of the ice hockey players ice in real ice hockey games. The fantasy sports games included entry fees and prizes and had been run since 1995 by Finnish media giant Sanoma Media Finland Oy (“Sanoma”). It was an undeniable fact that skillful and analytical participants who invested considerable time in fantasy sports games outperformed participants who picked players at random.

The background to the case is long, as national authorities had been trying to shut down fantasy sports games run by Sanoma for over a decade. In 2008, the Ministry of the Interior sent a request for an investigation to the police, who carried out a preliminary investigation. However, in 2010, the National Prosecutor’s Office (“postal code”) issued a non-prosecution decision stating that it was unresolved whether the Fantasy Sports games in question fell within the scope of the Lottery Act.

In 2017, the gambling law enforcement authority, the National Police Board (“NPB”) started administrative proceedings against Sanoma regarding fantasy sports games and two years later in 2019 the proceedings had reached the point where the NPB imposed a restraining order and a conditional fine of EUR 300,000 on Sanoma on the grounds that Sanoma was not licensed to run the fantasy sports games as they qualify as games of chance. Sanoma appealed to the Helsinki Administrative Court arguing that the fantasy sports games in question were games of skill with which chance had no effect on the outcome and therefore outside the scope of lotteries law, but in 2021 the Helsinki Administrative Court ruled in favor of the NPB. Sanoma appealed to the Supreme Administrative Court.

The Supreme Administrative Court recognized that the participants’ knowledge and skills were significant in the context of success, but recalled that at the same time, random factors beyond the control of the participant were also of significant importance. Thus, the chance of winning was at least partially based on luck. As fantasy sports games also included entry fees and prize money, only Veikkaus was allowed to organize them in Finland.

The Supreme Administrative Court’s decision came as no surprise. The definition of gambling in the Lotteries Act is extremely broad, a good example of which is that even an ice fishing competition and an auction were previously considered to fall within this definition. Nonetheless, the decision has further cemented the NPB’s authority and it remains to be seen what is the next competition or event they will go after next.

Soccer-Everton owner apologizes for ‘mistakes’ after difficult season

By Sports games

Everton owner Farhad Moshiri has apologized to the club’s fans after a dismal campaign that nearly ended their 68-year uninterrupted stay in the English top flight. Everton narrowly avoided relegation to finish 16th, securing only Premier League survival in their penultimate game of the season with a 3-2 win over Crystal Palace.

Moshiri has come under fire for the unpopular managerial appointment of Rafa Benitez, who was sacked in January after six months in charge and replaced by Frank Lampard. “Mistakes were made and for that I want to apologize to all of you,” he wrote in a letter to-evertonians on the club’s website, adding that the board had carried out a strategic review of operations to identify the reasons why they were underperforming.

“A lot of learnings have already been implemented,” Moshiri added, pointing to Lampard’s recruitment as an example. The former Chelsea manager was the “outstanding candidate” following a clearly defined process, he added.

Moshiri then expressed his support for the Ukrainian people and said Everton had offered Dynamo Kyiv a friendly match at Goodison Park to raise funds for those affected by the Russian invasion, which Moscow calls a “special military operation”.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Football-PSG’s Mbappe is the most valuable player in the world, according to a study

By Sports games

Paris St Germain striker Kylian Mbappe is the most valuable football player in the world, according to Swiss research group CIES Football Observatory, followed by Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr and Manchester City’s new signing Erling Haaland. Mbappe, who turned down Real and signed a new three-year contract at PSG last month, tops the list with an estimated transfer value of €205.6m ($219.5m), beating out Vinicius (€185.3m) and Haaland (€152.6m).

Mbappe’s PSG teammate Neymar holds the current transfer record. The French champions paid Barcelona €222m for his signing in 2017. The top five were completed by Barca youngster Pedri (€135.1m) and Borussia Dortmund’s English midfielder Jude Bellingham (€133.7 million).

The CIES Football Observatory uses indicators such as player age, performance, career progression and contract length to arrive at a transfer value. The latest list was dominated by Premier League players, with 41 representatives in the top 100.

City’s Ruben Dias (€109.6m) had the highest transfer value for a defender while PSG’s Gianluigi Donnarumma (€73.7m) was tops among goalkeepers. City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, 30, was the oldest player on the list, worth €57.3million.

By Sports games

The Indian weightlifting team en route to the Commonwealth Games, including Tokyo Olympics silver medalist Mirabai Chanu, will reach the host city of Birmingham a month early to acclimatize to the conditions and undergo a preparatory camp before the quadrennial event.

The CWG is due to take place from July 28 to August 8 in Birmingham, UK.

”The relievers will travel a month in advance. The exact date will be finalized after their visas arrive. Tentative travel dates are June 20 or 21,’ he added. Chanu, a two-time CWG medallist who won silver at Glasgow 2014 before winning gold four years later at the 2018 Gold Coast Games, has already begun her preparations for the event big budget.

The 27-year-old had completed a month-long training stint in the United States last month. However, others, including Youth Olympic Champion Jeremy Lalrinnunga, we cannot travel to the United States due to visa issues.

Husker sports website talks about Nebraska license plates

By Sports website

For those unfamiliar with this week’s news, Nebraska’s new license plate was unveiled to much fanfare and criticism. The news prompted a lengthy lecture by this writer in the website’s Slack channel on best practices and guidelines for vehicle tags, favorite and least favorite tags, and other unnecessary comments that led senior management to “suggest” that I write an article about the new tag and why I hate Iowa and its ugly, no good, completely lame black and white tag, among other things (more on that and why it’s at least better than the one in New York later). So without further ado, here is [not exactly] everything you ever wanted and lots of things you didn’t want to know about vehicle labels!

Nebraska’s new license plate

The new license plate (or “tag” as you may have already noticed, I often call it) is based on a Nebraska State Capitol mosaic named “Genius of Creative Energy”. The new label design will replace the 2017 redesign which was, as far as I can tell, a downright hated and mocked label that was based on the Golden Sower atop the Capitol building (after having to be redesigned after having was originally mistakenly modeled on a sower on Michigan State University’s Beaumont Tower). The new tag will go into production soon, and Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicle customers will begin receiving them in 2023 when vehicle registrations are renewed. Approximately 1.3 million registered vehicles will feature the new label design based on current registration.

License plate standards and best practices

Some might not be surprised, but most likely will find that license plates aren’t something you can just slap on the design front and send off to the production line. In fact, the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) has a publicly available guide to industry best practices and guidelines.

These principles have been refined over decades of experience to ensure labels are easily identifiable and readable in all road environments, from a sunny day to a rainstorm in the middle of the night and through the forces of the order, electronic tag readers and other motorists to name a few. some. Requirements like fonts, reflectivity, where things can and can’t go on a label, and a number of other factors are all considered.

Nebraska First Lady Susanne Shore referenced this at the press conference earlier this week when unveiling the new design when she said, “I originally thought when we started that you just find a beautiful, eye-catching image and you place it stylistically on this plate and you’re good to go. Couldn’t have been more wrong,” state law has specific design requirements mandating certain font, letter and number sizes, colors, and visibility levels, all of which were likely defined by the state legislature in conjunction with Nebraska DMV staff based on AAMVA guidelines.

As an example of something that would arguably violate these guidelines, there was a briefly featured tag in 2011 that included “” at the top of the tag with “Nebraska” turned sideways to run up and down. down along the left. AAMVA guidelines state that only the issuing jurisdiction (i.e. state or province) should be written in full at the top of the label above the numbers. This ensures that viewers cannot confuse the Arkansas (AR) and Arizona (AZ) postal abbreviation codes, with just one of many possible instances of potential confusion. To be clear, AAMVA guidelines are not the same as Nebraska law, so I’m not sitting here writing that the original 2011 winner broke any laws, I just posted the guidelines of the AAMVA published in 2020.

For those unfamiliar with AAMVA, it is a “tax-exempt nonprofit organization” founded in 1933 that develops “model programs in motor vehicle administration, enforcement of the law and road safety. The association also serves as a clearinghouse for information in these areas and acts as an international voice for these interests.

On a final note, you may now notice that I draw attention to the fact that alphanumeric label printing in Nebraska is exactly that, a series of printed letters and numbers. The move is gaining momentum nationwide as a cost-saving measure over old-fashioned stamping that would lift the letters and numbers off the label to make them even more easily visible. If you talk to motor vehicle personnel across the country who have been in their jobs for a while, you’ll probably understand how the stamping should never have been removed. I’m not even close enough to the knowledge of amateurs in the industry to have an informed opinion on this, but it’s worth mentioning that it’s a point of contention for some regardless.

License plate technology change

The first license plate ever issued by a state dates back to 1903 by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. License plates have come a long way since those early versions and the upcoming arrival of a vehicle near you could bring even bigger changes. Right now, the California DMV, Michigan Secretary of State, and Arizona’s ADOT MVD already issue what’s called an optional digital tag to customers. Other state entities such as the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration also completed a pilot program in 2021 of this technology, the fourth to do so.

A digital license plate uses technology similar to an Amazon Kindle to display a vehicle’s tag information on a digital ink display. It also allows the screen to display the tag number and relevant information even without the car’s engine running to provide it with active electrical flow.

This exciting new technology offers a number of game-changing changes to the industry, including the hassle of replacing your stickers when renewing. Instead, the screen can be instantly updated wirelessly when a customer renews their subscription. It also offers many more potential rescue options such as the ability to display real-time Amber alerts or an alert that the vehicle has been reported stolen. Some industry makers also claim that a parked car could potentially sell screen access for business messaging, but that seems like a stretch in many jurisdictions where the parking app would need access to the screen. label for ticketing information.

Another interesting development in California is a front license plate trim option for customers. Despite 31 states requiring a front license plate, including Nebraska, a number of automakers sell vehicles that do not have front bumpers capable of properly mounting a front tag to the vehicle without drilling. a large hole through the vehicle. Electric vehicle maker Tesla is a prime example despite being ahead of California’s demanding label, but traditional automakers like BMW and its 3-Series are also offenders.

The Golden State has begun offering a wrap-around sticker for the front bumpers of these vehicles that displays an image of a label that matches the one on the rear of the vehicle without the need to obtain a mounting bracket at the front. Compared to digital beacons, this isn’t exactly an “exciting” development, but if you’re an owner of such a vehicle, you’ll probably find it welcome news, you won’t have to drill an unwanted hole in your vehicle again. expensive.

The ugliest license plates

As mentioned a long time ago in this article, I have a few states out there that I personally particularly hate standard etiquette. Iowa and New York are two. The Iowa beacon is basically a throwback design in its simple black background with white font and border. I think it ends up looking tacky. In that regard, I guess it fits well with the state being Iowans in general are sticky.

The Iowa label contrasts with the Vermont label which is a similar older design concept of solid green with white font. Unlike the Iowa which looks tacky and the printing rather than stamping also makes it cheap, the Vermont one is a long standing design that feels timeless and looks great.

By far, the ugliest label of the country of my life was the now abandoned Empire State of New York label. This one was ugly in every way, from the color to the bland design, nothing about this label was nice and it ended up having some peeling issues to boot in its final years of production which led to a change in supplier contract.

As for some of my favorite tags, some might accuse of bias in the selections, but happy to take the pressure as these are fantastic. Michigan’s “Mackinaw” bridge (the bridge really needs to be changed to the English spelling to balance things out) redesigned several years ago actually won the world’s best award. However, the label needed an overhaul as the white font color makes it difficult to read and was later changed to black. Again, AAMVA standards are really important (ignore the “Pure Michigan” at the top which arguably violates those standards). Either way, it’s a gorgeous design on a label.

One of my other favorite alternative label designs is Maryland’s Save the Bay label. This one is a uniquely colorful label that showcases some of the best Maryland has to offer. Maybe the next redesign of this one can give more prominent placement of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge spans to really kick the quality up a notch.

And all of you? What are some of your favorite and least favorite Nebraska tags? What about beacons from other states?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Football – Spain and Portugal share the spoils of the League of Nations

By Sports games

Portugal striker Ricardo Horta equalized late to hand his side a 1-1 draw against Spain in their Nations League opener at the Estadio Benito Villamarin on Thursday.

Alvaro Morata had given Spain the lead but Horta’s goal saw the arch-rivals draw for the fourth consecutive time. Portugal haven’t won a competitive match against Spain since 2004 and have never beaten them on Spanish soil. “It’s good because Spain are strong and we were playing away. It’s a good result for Portugal,” said midfielder Bernardo Silva.

“We already knew them very well, but it’s difficult to play against them.” Spain got off to a good start in the Group 2 game of League A when midfielder Gavi had a chance from outside the box in the third minute but his effort was blocked.

Portuguese defender Pepe did well to stop midfielder Carlos Soler who was on goal after receiving an accurate low pass. Morata put Spain ahead from close range after a fine passing move involving midfielders Gavi and Pablo Sarabia in the 25th minute.

“We didn’t finish, but we played a good game,” Morata said. “We’ll see each other again. Football is like that, you have to look ahead.” The 29-year-old, who hopes to play his first World Cup this year, is now three goals behind Raul’s national team record of 61 across all age categories.

“He’s not a player with stratospheric numbers, but everything Morata gives us in attack and defense,” Spain coach Luis Enrique said. “It was a match similar to the previous ones. We could have won, but we could also have lost.”

Portugal had chances to equalize through striker Rafael Leao and striker Andre Silva before half-time, but both narrowly missed the target. Fernando Santos’ side were once again close to equalizing just before the hour mark after Leao received a pass from Silva and defender Diego Llorente failed to block his shot, but the goalkeeper Unai Simon stretched to refuse it.

Morata, meanwhile, had another good chance which went just wide of the left post in the 64th minute before being substituted. Substitute Horta equalized for Portugal eight minutes from time, leaving the Spanish defense behind as he latched on to defender Joao Cancelo’s precise cross inside the box and slotted a shot into the middle of the box. Simon’s goal.

Fans of both teams enjoyed a spirited game that crashed the Spanish national team’s website when tickets went on sale last week. The last positive result of the match was Spain’s victory on penalties in the 2012 European Championship and their last two friendlies ended scoreless.

The two teams will play three more Nations League games over the next 10 days. Spain travel to Switzerland between games against the Czech Republic while Portugal host the Czechs and face Switzerland twice. Spain and Portugal will meet on September 27, in their last group match.

Golf-Matsuyama disqualified from Memorial for marking on club

By Sports games

Former champion Hideki Matsuyama was disqualified from the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, midway through his first round on Thursday due to illegal tagging on one of his clubs. Matsuyama, who earned the first of his eight PGA Tour victories at the 2014 Memorial Tournament, was disqualified from the event hosted by Jack Nicklaus after painted lines were found on the face of his three woods.

If tagged for the first time, the former Masters champion was disqualified from a PGA Tour event. PGA Tour Senior Tournament Director Steve Rintoul said footage of the club had been posted online and his team only heard about it after Matsuyama used it on the first tee. If he hadn’t used the club, he could have continued playing.

Rintoul said his team approached Matsuyama on the second hole to ask if he had used the club and the former Masters champion was candid about it. “The material was applied to the face for the alignment so that Hideki puts the ball inside the circle of the lines. It’s actually the center of the face,” Rintoul told reporters.

“And applying a little discreet dot with a Sharpie to help you line up is good. We have players who do that all the time. But the amount of stuff that was on the face of the club, when we put it sent to the USGA, their equipment standards guys, it was just over the top. “And that’s what could affect – could affect – ball performance.”

Matsuyama, playing in a group alongside Rory McIlroy and Patrick Reed, was three on the par-39 when he reached the bend at Muirfield Village after a double bogey on the second hole and a bogey on the sixth.

Football-Liverpool president demands apology for French minister’s comments

By Sports games

Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has demanded an apology from the French sports minister after he said fans with fake tickets and the club’s handling of their supporters were responsible for the problems that marred the Champions League final Saturday champions.

The match at the Stade de France, which Real Madrid won 1-0, was delayed for more than half an hour after police tried to hold off people trying to push their way through the ground. Some fans, including children, were gassed by French riot police. On Monday, Sports Minister Amélie Oudea-Castera said the initial problems were caused by Liverpool fans without valid tickets and accused the club of leaving supporters “in the wild”.

French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin added that there had been “massive (ticket) fraud on an industrial scale”. Werner hit back late Monday in a letter to Oudea-Castera, describing his comments as “irresponsible, unprofessional and totally disrespectful” to the fans concerned.

“The UEFA Champions League final is expected to be one of the greatest spectacles in world sport, and instead it turned into one of the worst security meltdowns in recent memory,” Werner said. to the Liverpool Echo newspaper. “On behalf of all the fans who have experienced this nightmare, I ask for your apologies and the assurance that the French authorities and UEFA allow an independent and transparent investigation to continue.”

UEFA have commissioned an independent investigation into the incident while Oudea-Castera said they would produce a report within 10 days. In an interview on Liverpool’s website, CEO Billy Hogan said they were also considering the legal options available to them on behalf of their supporters.

Hogan said later on Tuesday that the club had received more than 5,000 responses after asking affected fans to fill out a form as they searched for evidence. “I spent some time during the day reviewing some of the information and honestly am horrified at how some men, women, children – able-bodied, less-abled – were treated indiscriminately over the course of Saturday” , Hogan said.

“It’s also important that we don’t lose sight of what happened after the game. We’ve all seen videos, photos, I’ve also read a number of stories of absolutely horrific experiences leaving the stadium – of crimes committed, assaults take place.”

Hogan said he also asked UEFA for his logbook to review recorded medical incidents so they could contact those respective supporters.

Football-Tottenham signs Croatian international Perisic

By Sports games

Tottenham Hotspur began to strengthen their squad ahead of a Champions League return by signing experienced Croatia international Ivan Perisic on a free transfer on Tuesday. The Premier League club have confirmed the versatile 33-year-old, whose contract with Inter Milan expired at the end of the season, has signed a two-year contract.

Perisic becomes manager Antonio Conte’s first major signing at the end of the season as the north London club prepare for a return to Europe’s top flight after finishing fourth in the Premier League. “I’m really delighted to start with the Spurs family,” Perisic told the club’s website “I really wanted to come here to the Premier League since 2009, when I started in professional football in Belgium, and I can’t wait.”

The move allows Perisic to reunite with Conte who he played with when Inter won the Serie A title in 2020-21. “I can’t wait to see him again. He lives football, every minute, every hour, every day, even when he’s sleeping, I think he’s thinking about football. I love his character and I know he’s going to do great work here.”

Perisic, who can play as a left-back or even in attack, joined Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund in 2011 where he won the league and the German Cup in his first season. After a stint at VfL Wolfsburg, he joined Inter in 2015 for whom he played over 200 Serie A games, scoring 49 goals.

He had a season on loan with Bayern Munich in 2019-20 and won the Bundesliga, Champions League and German Cup treble. Upon his return to Inter, under Conte, Perisic won the Serie title and that season helped the club win the Coppa Italia. Perisic will need no introduction to England fans, having scored the equalizer for Croatia in the 2018 World Cup semi-finals when England were beaten 2-1 after extra time.

He also scored in the final as Croatia lost to France. Perisic has 113 caps for Croatia and scored 32 goals.

By Sports events

Created: May 31, 2022 07:46

The Centennial Bermuda Foundation has partnered with a website that highlights local scholarships to help find opportunities for improvement.

A spokesperson for the foundation says that lists over 250 scholarships each year, but it is hoped that the review will help maximize the benefits they provide.

All organizations that offer post-secondary scholarships are invited to complete a 15-minute survey that will collect data on scholarships currently available, including for certification, undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and professional studies. .

Vivien Carter, Director of Centenary Programs, said, “We encourage all scholarship providers to participate in this survey as it will give all of us more insight into the scholarship landscape.

“Thank you to those who have already responded. We plan to share a high-level report with all stakeholders once the data is collected.”

Centennial said it will also conduct a strategic evaluation of the scholarships it offers to reconsider their fit with those available in the wider community.

Allison Towlson, CEO of Centennial, added, “We strive to ensure equitable access and opportunities for all Bermudian post-secondary students.

“Three years ago, Centennial refocused its scholarship eligibility criteria on financial need as the primary criterion. This year’s strategic review is the next step in this work.

The survey has already been emailed to known scholarship providers and the foundation said it hopes to receive responses from at least 100 of the recipients.

The survey is due to close today, May 30, and is available online at

CMCSS: Understanding Anxiety, Students Speak – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

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

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

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

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

Signs of Anxiety in Children

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

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

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

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

Worried about yourself or someone you love?

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

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