Legal wagering to boost sports viewership, poll suggests

first_img A survey conducted by a New Jersey university suggests that sports betting may drive an increase in sports viewership, with a clear majority of those surveyed saying they are more likely to tune in if they have wagered money on a game.The findings were revealed in the latest edition of the Seton Hall Sports Poll, a regular survey of public views on sports and related businesses that has been carried out since 2006 by the Seton Hall University, a private Roman Catholic academic institution.The report suggests that 70% of consumers are more likely to watch a sporting event on television or via a stream if they place a bet on it. This increases to 88% when focusing on the 18-29 age bracket.The poll also revealed an apparent appetite for mobile betting, with 40% of respondents saying they would bet via their phone rather than at a casino or gambling parlour. Respondents were also mainly of the opinion that states should be left to regulate sports betting, with 65% favouring the status quo, as opposed to a 26% minority that backed a federal framework.However, the Seton Hall Sports Poll also revealed a degree of uncertainty towards sports betting among respondents. It found that 61% were worried legal betting across the country could result in higher levels of match-fixing in major US sports leagues.Those polled were also worried at how legalised sports wagering could fuel a rise in problem gambling across the US, with 43% agreeing to some extent. Such concerns were more apparent among older respondents, when, in comparison, just 5% of those aged 18-29 feared a rise in problem gambling levels. The poll also revealed apparent uncertainty among consumers regarding the legality of wagering, with 52% of respondents unsure if sports betting is legal in their state. There was also a clear split over whether the Supreme Court was right to repeal PASPA and allow more states to legalise sports betting. While 40% approved of the move, 16% were against it and 44% were unsure or had no opinion on the matter.Rick Gentile, director of the Seton Hall Sports Poll, said: “Watching is the first step towards creating a paying fan. In the 1980s, the leagues became aware that fantasy sports were heightening interest, and eventually, they embraced it. Now they appear to be ‘all in’ with something once impossible to imagine.”The figures on fan engagement back up earlier claims by the American Gaming Association (AGA) that major leagues in the country would attract more viewers if they were able to work with the gaming industry. In October, the AGA and Nielson Sports said the four major leagues could earn a collective $4.2bn (£3.29bn/€3.70bn) extra per year if they embrace legal sports betting.Revenue for Major League Baseball could increase by $1.1bn, with basketball’s NBA is set to benefit by an extra $585m. Ice hockey’s NHL could see revenue hike by up to $200m per year, while the NFL American football league may see its revenue climb by $2.3bn each year. Since the repeal of PASPA earlier this year, New Jersey, Delaware, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and West Virginia have all moved to legalise and subsequently launch sports betting services. Many other states are also in the process of developing bills to follow suit. This week, Kansas lawmakers opened a debate in the hope of filing a bill in the state’s House of Representatives during the 2019 legislative session. Last week, Washington D.C. opted to drop a so-called royalty fee for sports leagues from a bill before progressed it forward to a full council hearing. However, states could face fresh challenges to legalise sports betting, according to a leaked Congressional draft bill. The bill would require states to have betting legislation approved by the US Attorney General and purchase official major league data.Image: Max Pixel Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Tech & innovation Legal & compliance Legal wagering to boost sports viewership, poll suggests AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Poll conducted by New Jersey private univesity Seton Hall also flags concerns over problem gambling Regions: US 5th December 2018 | By contenteditor Email Addresslast_img read more

The boohoo share price just climbed 30% in one day. Would I keep on buying?

It’s been a turbulent few days for the boohoo (LSE: BOO) share price. When a Sunday Times investigation uncovered poor working conditions and low pay at a supplier’s Leicester factories, shares fell by 46% in just two days. Yesterday, its share price then rose by 30% to 286p. Nevertheless, this is still a 30% decrease from its recent high, and I believe that it could offer an opportunity to buy the popular growth stock.The boohoo share price has seen consistent growthFrom its IPO in 2014, the boohoo share price has risen from 50p to its recent high of 413p. When looking at the figures, it’s hardly surprising. Earnings in 2014 totalled just over £8m, whereas earnings last year reached £64m. This growth has mainly been brought about by strong consumer demand, and a large range of cheap clothes. The clothing firm has also thrived throughout the coronavirus pandemic, especially as its high street rivals have been unable to trade.  It has also expanded internationally and made a number of popular acquisitions, including Pretty Little Thing and Nasty Gal. Expansion into the US has seen tremendous growth, with first quarter revenues there up 83%. As such, future growth seems imminent, and this should further increase the boohoo share price. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…How much of a worry is the recent news?News of poor working standards should obviously be taken very seriously, especially if this is a widespread issue. In fact, for boohoo, its business rests on buying its clothes at such cheap prices, so that operating margins can stay high.Any negative backlash against the brand would also have severe consequences, especially because it relies heavily on celebrities promoting its products. In a world where fast fashion is already in the spotlight for environmental concerns, any disrepute brought upon the brand could have long-lasting ramifications. As such, it’s not surprising that the boohoo share price has fallen so significantly this week.But I do still think that the market may have overreacted to the news. Firstly, boohoo has isolated themselves from the factory in question, and has already pledged to invest in improving factory conditions. With £350m of net cash, and just £20m of debt, the firm is in a very strong position to achieve this. In addition, the recent news seems to be an isolated event, in that there is no evidence of a widespread problem. This means that I cannot see the consequences being long-lasting. This explains the 30% share price rise yesterday, and I believe this rally should continue.Would I buy boohoo shares?Personally, I believe that the recent drop in the boohoo share price has led to a fantastic buying opportunity. This is reiterated by many investment firms. Many hedge funds who had shorted the stock have now closed their positions. With a price-to-earnings ratio of around 36, the boohoo share price cannot be classed as cheap. But after its recent fall, and considering the opportunity for future growth, I would not hesitate in buying boohoo shares today. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

TREC hopes to cast ‘bold vision,’ specific proposals

first_img Youth Minister Lorton, VA Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Belleville, IL Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Comments (2) Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs December 6, 2013 at 9:16 pm Both at TREC’s meeting and at the recent WCC’s meeting there appears to have been little discussion of Pope Francis and the revolution he is beginning in the Roman Church. By his life of radical simplicity and dedication to serving the poor he brings a new spirit to Christian mission. It is by living the life of Christ that he recommends himself to people of all backgrounds and faiths. I believe we need that kind of inspiring leadership and example from our bishops, priests, and lay leaders. A new direction for the Church begins with a new spirit of simplicity and service, of true Christ-like humility and compassion. Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC The Ven. Robert Franken, a member of the Task Force for Re-imagining the Episcopal Church, shows the group a Wordle based on responses to the first question of the task force’s engagement process with the church. The question asks for Episcopalians to reflect on their experience of the church, choose their “very best memory” and express it in three words. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg, Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] By this time next year, the members of the Episcopal Church will have just recently learned what changes and plans the Task Force for Re-imagining the Episcopal Church will recommend to the General Convention. However, between now and then, much work remains for the 26-member group, including what more than one member said is the need to connect specific proposals for change to a bold vision of what the churchwide structures can be and do.TREC’s work began after General Convention in July 2012, by way of Resolution C095, which called for a task force “to present the 78th General Convention with a plan for reforming the church’s structures, governance, and administration.” The task force is due to make public its report to General Convention in late 2014.Katy George, who shares the work on convening the task force with the Rev. Craig Loya, told the group at the beginning of its Dec. 6-7 meeting here at the Maritime Institute, outside of Baltimore, that many task force members have expressed the feeling that “we’d like to step it up and really make sure that we are producing something fantastic.”George told the group that she thinks it will be important for the task force to not just list its recommendations in its final report but to explain to the church “our holistic vision for how we’re hoping that the church moves in a new direction as a networked facilitator actually, as opposed to a corporation.”And, she said, the group must be able to “really bring to life to the church how [the group’s proposals] will change how we spend our resources, how we spend our time, how we make decisions, we work together on mission.”Council member Tom Little seemed to anticipate the path of discussion for the rest of the morning session when he suggested that as the group considers specific proposals “we may end up tweaking the vision.”Engaging with the engagement processThe members spent most of the Dec. 6 morning session, which was open to the public, discussing what they have heard from its “church engagement process” thus far. The group developed an “engagement kit,” which was posted on its website in mid-October. It is downloadable in English or Spanish as a PDF or PowerPoint here and includes overviews, guidelines for engagement, facilitator’s notes, charts and other material.The kit is meant for use at any local, diocesan, or churchwide gathering and anyone can lead the discussions it prompts and report the results to the task force. There is also an opportunity for online engagement, which is a series of four questions.The kit is meant to help the task force hear from Episcopalians about “the memories, hopes and dreams” that they have for the church, according to the group’s website. The deadline for submitting information is March 14.Nearly 190 groups and individuals have responded to the four online questions, sometimes with lengthy comments. All of those comments are posted just below the explanation of the engagement kit at the link above. More responses have come to the task force via other methods, putting the total number of responses somewhere between 260 and 280, according to the Ven. Robert Franken, who along with the Rev. Leng Lim, led the task force through a lengthy multi-part discussion of the responses received thus far.The task force needs more input, Franken said, because the response to date “gives us a picture but it doesn’t yet give us the whole picture, and we want to make sure that the picture we’re getting is the right picture.”Few of the task force members have answered the four online questions, according to a show of hands. And not all who have facilitated groups who used the engagement kit have supplied the results to the task force, Franken said.“Where’s the data, folks?” Franken asked his colleagues.Yet, many task force members who have used the engagement kit with groups reported having profound experiences.When Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania Bishop Sean Rowe used the process during a diocesan convention, “I couldn’t get people to stop talking,” he said.The Rev. Kevin Nichols said he began using the engagement kit in his congregation, including with the confirmation class. “Every group was trying to go deeper spiritually by using the images that were presented,” he said. “I worried at first that maybe it was a little be too simplistic – that our questions weren’t grand enough – but with each group I felt like it went to a depth that I didn’t even imagine.”Members of the Task Force for Re-imagining the Episcopal Church begin Dec. 6 to study input from the church at the beginning or their two-day meeting at the Maritime Institute in Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg, Episcopal News ServiceDuring the Dec. 6 session, the members found some suggested ways of changing the churchwide structures as they considered some of the verbatim comments as well as summaries of all the input the task force has received. They also heard some general and specific suggestions from each other.Those proposals were presented to them as “teaser,” in Leng’s words, rather than formal proposals.“As a church predisposed to legislation, when someone says something, we think ‘Oh, my gosh, am I on board on this or not; is this a recommendation I can support?’ [and] then we go down the track of voting,” he cautioned. “We actually putting out ideas for you to test, to try on; we’re not asking you to buy, we’re really asking you to rent …we are trusting that something is going to unfold.”Joan Delano, a consultant to the task force who works with the ClearLake Group as does Leng, summarized the input received thus far and she noted “a powerful sense of the importance of the liturgy, ritual, tradition and history” in the comments. “The strength of the mysticism theme was intriguing,” she added.One question in the process asks “what do you think is the one thing The Church should hold on to and the one thing it could let go?” Delano, who was ill and could not be at the meeting, reported that the “hold on to” responses “were overwhelming about the spiritual side” of the Episcopal Church and the “let go” responses “were overwhelming about administration and governance.”“The respondents overwhelmingly want to cut the bureaucracy and the administrative burden,” she wrote. “My reflection is that being in control consumes a lot of resources, and that people sense how much resource could be freed up if TEC invested less in governance and administration.”While Delano reported finding few comments from people with an “obvious ax to grind,” the Rev. Marianne Ell said her small group of task force members sensed “some real hatefulness, and passive-aggressiveness and taking a shot at things” in some of the answers to the let-go question.George told the group that her experience with the task force has caused her to come to “a very different framing of the problem” facing the church. She came onto the task force, she said, believing that the church’s process was “way too big – expensive, big, unwieldy – and that as forcing our ‘product,’ our mission to be way too small.”In fact, she said, very little money overall is spent on governance and administration and “actually all the mission is being done elsewhere.”“So, what I see is that we have a small process and we’re cranking out too little product with it because we’re not engaging and empowering the whole church,” she said. “So, our job is not about ‘let’s cut down process;’ it’s ‘let’s re-imagine the process to make bigger product.’”Diocese of El Camino Real Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves said the church’s “greatest asset” is the people in the pews “and what we’ve done is we’ve said the creative asset should run through this thing called the CCABs [the church’s committees, commissions, agencies and boards] and that’s the lie that’s perpetuated in this hierarchal system.”George agreed, saying “the point is it’s not about cutting down our bureaucracy, it’s about rethinking it so that it naturally has a very different role; that’s the radical shift that I think we need to make.”The rest of the meeting’s agendaThe group met privately during the afternoon of Dec. 6 and was scheduled to begin discussing possible proposals and to hear from a subcommittee on the constitutional and canonical implications of any of those proposals. TREC’s half-day session on Dec. 7 will be open. During that session, George said, the group will decide its next steps, including how to begin to draft its report to the church. The task force expects to issue a statement to the church about this meeting early in the week of Dec. 8, Loya told Episcopal News Service.TREC’s Facebook page is here and it is here on Twitter with @ReimagineTEC, where the group is using #reimaginetec. The task force tweeted periodically throughout the morning of Dec. 6, summarizing what the members were working on.ENS coverage of the initial work of TREC is here.– The Rev.

CJ Stander banned for 1 week after red card for knocking out Pat Lambie

first_imgMonday Jun 13, 2016 CJ Stander banned for 1 week after red card for knocking out Pat Lambie Ireland flanker CJ Stander had to wait anxiously to find out his fate after he was red carded for this challenge on Springbok Pat Lambie during Ireland’s famous win in Cape Town on Saturday. Lambie was knocked out cold and will not be able to take part in the second Test.*UPDATE: After a lengthy hearing, this article has been updated to reflect the news of the banThe referee’s decision to red card South African born and raised Stander was met with consternation, but there was more to come, as the discplinary hearing lasted roughly a day in total. It took five hours on Sunday, and when it continued today, it seemed to take just as long (11 total!).Stander has now been banned for a total of one week. He will miss the 2nd Test of the series at Ellis Park, but be back for the third and final Test in Port Elizabeth in a fortnight.‘The Judicial Officer was not satisfied on the balance of probability that the referee, Mathieu Raynal of France, was wrong when he issued the red card to the player.’The full written statement has not been issued yet, leaving Ireland in the dark as to an appeal.Lambie and Stander were teammates in the South African U20 side at the Junior World Championships in 2010, and reports state that Stander made the effort to check on him in the tunnel, then personally apologise at the post match function.Lambie will serve a mandatory one week break following the concussion, and with Springbok first choice number ten Handre Pollard also injured, experienced – yet out of favour – Morne Steyn has been called up.The Springbok’s team doctor said even though the Lambie’s x-rays showed no abnormality, he will however undergo further scans this week as a precaution.

Casa Ter surges from a process of truly listing to the cultural and natural environment it inhabits. The decisions behind its shape and materiality are rooted in touching as little of the natural surroundings as possible, and interpreting the local building culture of the area (the rural fields and towns of l’Empordà), using contemporary construction techniques. Following this premise, Casa Ter aims to create a personal sense of place, in close contact with all elements it’s surrounded by.Save this picture!© Salva LopezSave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!© Salva LopezUsing local building materials: The ceramics of La Bisbal and stones of the River Ter. Casa Ter is located in Baix Empordà, an area that functions as an intersection between three natural landscapes: sea, mountain, and field. In order to make this context tangible to its users, the home is made out of two volumes which create three different spaces, each branching out towards one of the surrounding landscapes, touching as little of the natural surroundings as possible.Save this picture!© Salva LopezFollowing the local construction traditions of the region, the walls of Casa Ter are composed of KM0 materials, using a mix of concrete and stones from the local river Ter with ceramics, a material with a long cultural tradition in the neighbouring La Bisbal, where the material makes for one of the main economic activities.Save this picture!© Salva LopezSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Salva LopezA walk through Casa Ter. The house lends its shape from looking for the different views of the site, with each volume running out towards one; The sea, the hills and the fields. The entrance path of Casa Ter takes you to an enclosed patio generated by two volumes in “L” (positioned on the flat side of the plot). One volume functions as a public area, while the other, is private, in the form of a series of bed- and bathrooms.Save this picture!© Salva LopezThe second volume connects the kitchen to the public area, creating a meeting point in-between the two volumes. This meeting point is designed as a traditional porch, part indoor, part outdoor, as space comes with big, glass sliding doors that can be closed or opened depending on the weather (much-needed shade in summer, closed off in winter).Save this picture!© Salva LopezSave this picture!© Salva LopezOn the second floor, we find the master bedroom, which comes with an enormous Catalan vault whose geometry corresponds to the extrusion of the curve that is limited by the maximum height allowed, the centreline of the walls, and the facade of the house. With the bedroom being the most intimate space, only does this room, gives glimpses of the complete surrounding landscapes.Save this picture!© Salva LopezA Mediterranean way of living. A Mediterranean way of living means living outdoors a lot, due to the pleasant climate throughout the year. In Spain, it’s not uncommon to have an outdoor kitchen or living area, where people spend most of their days together. Ideally, these areas are very connected to the inside of the home, extending the living space, and creating ambiguous spaces, in between indoor and outdoor.Save this picture!© Salva LopezCasa Ter is a polyvalent home in the sense that it can be used in various ways depending on the needs of the user or the time of the year. The house can be closed off or set open completely. One can choose to keep nature at a distance through the windows or to let it into the home. The centre area, the porch, can be whatever the user wants it to be.Save this picture!© Salva Lopez Save this picture!© Salva Lopez+ 26Curated by Clara Ott Share “COPY” Area:  250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Ter House / MESURA Ter House / MESURASave this projectSaveTer House / MESURA Project gallerySee allShow lessNandalal Sewa Samithi Library / Anupama Kundoo ArchitectsSelected ProjectsWell Well Well Hotel Renovation / FON STUDIOSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952672/ter-house-mesura Clipboard Year:  2019last_img read more

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Charity Commission clarifies new powers to issue warnings the factual accuracy of what the breach, misconduct or mismanagement being warned of is and the commission’s understanding of the circumstances – what happened, who was involvedwho the warning is being made againstany action the commission considers needs to be taken to rectify the breach, misconduct or mismanagementThe commission has also clarified its position on the publication of warnings, and on what trustees must do in response to an official warning. The full Q&A document can be downloaded from the commission’s site.  70 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 The Charity Commission will give charities and charity trustees 28 days to respond to warnings, it has announced in a clarification of its new statutory powers.Under The Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016, the commission has been granted the statutory power to issue official warnings, and to disqualify individuals from trusteeship. Consultations on these powers resulted in a number of requests for clarification on how the commission would issue warnings, the notice period and process for representations, and the approach to the publication of warnings.In its clarification document, published last week, it states that it does not need to open a statutory inquiry before it can issue a warning, but that it may consider opening an inquiry and using its other powers if trustees subsequently fail to rectify a breach specified in an official warning.It also states that the commission will follow the principles in its risk framework in deciding what regulatory action is appropriate, and is likely to take action when it considers a charity to:have acted recklessly or without due care, resulting in a breach of trust, misconduct or mismanagementhave failed to take appropriate steps to rectify a breach of trust, misconduct or mismanagement despite engagement with the commissionhave failed to discharge legal duties in the administration of the charity or a charity has failed to discharge its legal duties in connection with charity activities)have displayed a pattern of repeated misconduct or mismanagementhave committed deliberate or wilful wrongdoing resulting in a breach but it would not be proportionate in the circumstances for the commission to use other powersIt is unlikely to issue a warning when:the breach, misconduct or mismanagement is minor or technical in nature (such as a breach of administrative provisions in the governing document)it does not demonstrate a repeated course of conductthe trustees have acted honestly and reasonably and are taking appropriate steps to put matters right and prevent a recurrencethe loss or risk to the charity or to public trust and confidence in the charity is minimalAccording to the document: ‘In all cases where the commission… intends to issue a warning, it must give statutory notice of its intention and give each of the trustees (in the UK) and the charity the opportunity to make representations first. So you will be aware of the commission’s concerns and will have the opportunity to respond before the commission decides to proceed with issuing or publishing the official warning.’Once a charity has been notified of a proposed warning, it will normally have 28 days to respond.While the commission is willing to consider a range of representations, it must consider representations about ‘the content of the proposed warning’, including: Advertisementlast_img read more
