What to expect from this summer’s European football championship

first_imgRetention Sports betting Customer acquisition can be costly, and at a time when marketing budgets are under scrutiny, retention is increasingly at the forefront of operators’ minds. As live sports return, operators are looking ahead to try to take a strategic approach to meeting their customers’ needs. After a tumultuous year, outcomes are more unpredictable than ever but taking a data-driven approach provides the best chance for operators to maximise the engagement opportunities at hand. As Europe’s largest football tournament approaches, there comes new opportunities for operators to capitalize on the engagement and momentum that comes with it. The global pandemic has delayed the competition by 12 months, building much anticipation around the effect this will have on the players, teams, and gameplay. “With fewer people placing bets via desktop, heading into the tournament, the priority for operators will be on providing an offering that is optimised for mobile. A mobile-first approach that considers the small screen, is functional for the end-user, and provides an engaging betting experience will be key,” says Bahia. Given the significance of the competition amongst fans, Sportradar’s Dalraj Bahia expects them to respond in much the same way they did when live sport returned after the initial lockdown last year.  With the delayed European football championships finally set to get underway this June, operators can expect a much-needed boost in revenues given the pent-up demand for top level, international tournament football amongst fans.  Mobile-first The return of the Bundesliga, the first football league to resume play, delivered a significant upturn in betting activity, with turnover increasing 112% compared to the opening day of the season the previous August. For operators looking to maximise their budgets, deliver efficient campaigns, and reduce ad waste, the highly targeted approach of programmatic video advertising can be optimised to deliver efficient CPC, CPM, and CPcV.   The past 18 months have been particularly tough on retail operators as lockdown and social distancing measures impact footfall on the high street.  An effective mobile offering is all the more important given that the tournament will be broadcast free to air in most countries, providing operators with the opportunity to maximise the second screen viewing experience and go direct to customers with a reliable, real-time offering.  “Mobile will also play a part in driving engagement with fans. Stimulation tools optimised for mobile devices, like our Live Match Tracker, for example, are a key part of the product mix for operators and are having a growing influence on betting behaviour and lead to increased engagement levels,” he says. The effect of COVID What to expect from this summer’s European football championship “Online video advertising will be another key component for marketers ahead of the June 11th kick-off. Having a  growth medium accompanied with  marketing strategies that include video ads increases the likelihood of converting punters into depositing customers. Research shows that revenue can grow up to 49% faster compared to competitors who do not use video advertising.” And, while the UK nations are easing their Covid restrictions to enable punters to go back in store, lockdown has only served to accelerate the shift towards digital betting platforms. “By tapping into their customer data and insights, operators can increase the lifetime value of their base. Adopting a personalised CRM strategy that engages with customers according to their predicted value and provides personalised recommendations and journeys relevant to the customer’s known interests, preferences, and behaviours should help reduce player churn, as will inspire them to engage with the relevant sporting moments” explains Bahia. For more insights from Dalraj Bahia on predictions for the European championships, sign up for our upcoming webinar: “Maximising the opportunity for sportsbook operators.” Email Address “While there are always upsets in tournaments of this nature, we’re expecting to see at least one of the favourites fall down early in the competition. The domestic seasons and European cup contests all wrap up in late May, giving very little preparation time for the competing teams”, says Bahia. “Stimulation tools have a positive impact on consumer dwell time and, with match information in one place, reduce the likelihood of customers navigating away from the site.” Ahead of every major football tournament, it is common to see aggressive offerings from operators as they look to bring in new customers with sign-up bonuses and promotions.  Dalraj Bahia is Managing Director of Operations within Sportradar’s Betting & Gaming vertical. Working alongside Sportradar’s Chief Product Officer, Dalraj helps manage a global team to lead and develop  a suite of Betting & Gaming products. Previously, Dalraj worked within the Direct Private Equity team at CPP Investments, where he focused on lead and co-lead investments across a variety of sectors The players, especially those who play their trade in England, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, have played a long season with fixtures moved and rescheduled in order to get games in front of fans during lockdown.

Why I just bought more BP shares

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Karl Loomes | Wednesday, 29th April, 2020 | More on: BP I often invest with income in mind. Oil majors, despite volatility, are often my main go-to shares. With the price of crude hitting the industry hard, and after it announced poor results this week, I think now could be the perfect time to buy BP (LSE: BP) shares.Short-term shocks, long-term investmentContrarian investing has been an area where I often make good money. Buying shares when everyone is panicking gives lots of opportunity if you can get it right. When I look at oil prices, taking a hit because of the coronavirus pandemic, I think we have just such an opportunity again.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…What has really led me to buy more BP shares however is not the potential for growth, but the high dividend yield they offer – currently more than 10% on an annual basis. Despite its poor earnings numbers, BP confirmed it would be maintaining its latest dividend. Though this could change if oil prices continue to stay low for the coming year, I think the BP dividend is a risk worth taking.I think there may be some risk in trying to turn a quick profit in BP shares – they could still go lower yet. However, as a long-term investment, with income in mind, I think BP shares are well low enough to be interesting. If the price goes lower, I suspect I will be buying even more shares.Why I think BP shares will go back upA few things underpin my confidence in the company. Firstly, the current pressure is all due to low oil prices. These in turn are due to an oversupplied market and falling demand due to coronavirus. I think both of these problems will not last forever.Coronavirus lockdowns will, of course, eventually end. Though travel attitudes may change somewhat (fewer business flights for example), the market will soon reach normal levels of demand. Likewise, though there is some oversupply at the moment, this too should fade.OPEC is already beginning to implement production cuts. Summer in the Northern Hemisphere will soon see demand increase as everyone turns on their air conditioning.On Tuesday the company said it would be bolstering its finances and boosting liquidity in order to lower its break-even price to $35 per barrel. While I think $50–$60 price levels will be very unlikely this year, I think $35 is very achievable.Another aspect I like in BP shares is the confidence of investors. Admittedly the dividend has a lot to do with this. BP shares are also a mainstay of many institutional investor portfolios. Pension funds, for example, think very long term. They will be holding BP shares for decades – these oil price fluctuations will hardly register.One can see the confidence the market has in the company after its poor earnings numbers this week. Despite announcing first quarter earnings plummeting by a third, the BP share price closed the day higher.I do think there is growth potential in the stock right now. But even if I didn’t, the 10% dividend yield is why I just bought more BP shares. Karl has shares in BP. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Munster v London Irish

first_img Neither Munster nor London Irish can progress to the quarter finals of the Heineken Cup, but plenty of pride and bragging rights are still up for grabs in Saturday’s pool 3 clash.Munster felt the force of London Irish at full swagger in October, losing 23-17 in round 1 of the competition at the Majedski Stadium, but since then Saturday’s visitors have suffered from a significant fall from grace. Having started the domestic season with plenty of promise, Toby Booth’s men ended 2010 on a losing streak which lasted for 10 games, and ended last weekend at home to the Ospreys. A week that should have seen the Londoners on a mini high has brought news that centre Seilala Mapusua is to leave the club at the end of this season, and an 8-week ban for England full-back Delon Armitage, leaving Topsy Ojo to fill the gap at 15 on Saturday.As if Munster’s loss to Toulon last week wasn’t humiliating enough, especially after their 45-18 drubbing of the French side in October at Thomond Park, they are now coming to terms with failing to qualify for the European quarter finals for the first time in 12 years. This news will not have been taken lightly in Limerick by players and fans alike, and they are now eyeing up a win in the Amlin Challenge Cup to make amends for their untimely exit.My three wishes for the game:1) London Irish to give their hosts a scare – I think turning over Munster at Thomond Park will be too much of an ask, but the Londoners need to build on last week’s win if they want to rediscover their form and start climbing back up the Premiership table. Let’s see some of that attacking rugby they’re famous for, so Munster have to work for every point.2) Munster to play with 15 men on the pitch – for the full 80 minutes please fellas. Tony McGahan’s men have shot themselves in the foot this season with their poor discipline, and 14 men don’t win trophies.3) Nick Kennedy to have a blinder in the lineout – with injuries to Courtney Lawes and Steve Borthwick, and Dave Attwood serving his own suspension, there’s a small opening in the England door. The Kennedy/Bob Casey second-row partnership has long been hailed as one of the most successful in the Premiership, and this is a great opportunity for those on the fringes to show Martin Johnson and co what they’re missing.

RIP: The Rt. Rev. Barbara C. Harris, Anglican Communion’s first…

first_img The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Press Release Service Rector Knoxville, TN The Rt. Rev. Barbara C. Harris, at her historic consecration service on Feb. 11, 1989. Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts Photo: David Zadig[Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts] The Rt. Rev. Alan M. Gates, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, has announced the death of the Rt. Rev. Barbara C. Harris, the first woman to be ordained and consecrated a bishop in the worldwide Anglican Communion.As the first, Harris belonged, in a sense, to the whole church. With great grace, she honored her symbolic role while tirelessly serving the people of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts as their suffragan (assisting) bishop for 13 years, from her historic consecration on Feb. 11, 1989, until her retirement in 2002 — all the while striving to be faithful to her calling, her church and her God.She was a spirited and sought-after preacher of hymn-laced, Gospel-grounded sermons and an outspoken advocate for, in her words, “the least, the lost and the left out.”Harris died March 13, 2020, at Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln, Massachusetts, following a hospitalization in Boston, faithfully attended throughout by close friends and upheld by the prayers of many. She was 89.“Our hearts are truly heavy at the loss of one who has been a faithful and altogether irrepressible companion, pastor and inspiration to us in the Diocese of Massachusetts for 31 years. At the same time our hearts are truly buoyed by the hope which she preached and the conviction she embodied for us throughout all these years,” Gates said.From left, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, retired Massachusetts Bishop Suffragan Barbara C. Harris and House of Deputies Vice President Byron Rushing receive a standing ovation following an April 2019 panel discussion at Grace Church in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Photo: Bridget K. Wood/Diocese of Massachusetts“Bishop Harris was not large of physical stature. In fact, the opposite,” Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said. “But she was larger than life. She was larger than life because she lived it fully with her God and with us. She did it by actually living the love of God that Jesus taught us about. She did it walking the lonesome valley of leadership, paving a way for so many of us whose way had been blocked. She did it lifting her voice for those who had no voice. She did with a joke, a whispered word, a secret joy in spite of anything that got in her way, including death. No wonder she titled her memoir, ‘Hallelujah, Anyhow!’”The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, released a written statement saying, “it is almost impossible to imagine the Episcopal Church without Bishop Barbara Harris.”“Barbara was always completely and totally Barbara,” Jennings said. “She never pretended to be anyone other than who she was, and she told the truth no matter what the cost. Often that cost was paid with the comfort and dignity of institutional leaders who were, in her view, insufficiently interested in standing with the marginalized and the vulnerable. They learned quickly that her passion for justice was matched only by her wicked and fearless sense of humor.”Arrangements are pending for a public funeral service to be held at Washington National Cathedral and a private graveside service in Philadelphia, followed thereafter by a memorial service at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston. Because of the coronavirus pandemic and current restrictions on travel and group gatherings, service dates and details will be set at a later time.Barbara Clementine Harris was born on June 12, 1930, in Philadelphia to Walter and Beatrice (Price) Harris. She graduated from the Philadelphia High School for Girls and the Charles Morris Price School of Advertising and Journalism, and in 1949 joined Joseph V. Baker Associates Inc., a national public relations firm headquartered in Philadelphia. She was president of the firm in 1968 when she joined the Sun Company (formerly Sun Oil) as community relations consultant. She later was named manager of community and urban affairs and headed Sun’s public relations department from May 1973 until becoming a senior staff consultant at Sun’s corporate headquarters in 1977.Harris was active in the civil rights movement of the 1960s, through the Episcopal Society for Cultural and Racial Unity (ESCRU) and the National Council of Churches’ Delta ministry, traveling in 1965 to Greenville, Mississippi, to help register black voters and taking part in the Selma to Montgomery march.She had an active lay ministry in The Episcopal Church, in Christian education, prison chaplaincy and leadership at parish, diocesan and churchwide levels, before discerning a call to ordained ministry. She was ordained a priest at age 50, in 1980 — when the ordination of women had been officially recognized in The Episcopal Church for only four years.Harris was priest-in-charge of St. Augustine of Hippo Church in Norristown, Pennsylvania, from 1980 to 1984. She also served as chaplain to the Philadelphia County prisons and as counsel to industrial corporations on public policy issues and social concerns. In 1984, she was named executive director of the Episcopal Church Publishing Company and publisher of the social justice magazine The Witness. In 1988, she took on additional duties as interim rector of the Church of the Advocate in Philadelphia.On Feb. 11, 1989, before a congregation of 8,000 in Boston’s Hynes Auditorium — and virtually the whole world via live television and international media coverage — Harris became the first woman ordained a bishop in the worldwide Anglican Communion. It was the climax to months of church controversy and a media maelstrom that followed her Sept. 24, 1988, election.She preached and worked continually for the eradication of racism, sexism and homophobia, and to help bring about the full inclusion of all people in the life and sacraments of the church.Harris was a member of the Union of Black Episcopalians and a founding member and president of the Episcopal Urban Caucus. She represented the Episcopal Church on the board of the Prisoner Visitation and Support Committee and was a member of the church’s Standing Commission on Anglican and International Peace with Justice Concerns. She also served as a member of the Board of Trustees of Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.She was the recipient of at least 17 honorary degrees from colleges, universities and theological schools. In 2007, she received a Wisdom Award from the National Visionary Leadership Project.Despite all the honors and the high-profile events of her ministry, Harris would always say that the best moments of her years as bishop were those spent baptizing, confirming and receiving people into the church.After her retirement, she served from 2003 until early 2007 as an assisting bishop in the Episcopal Diocese of Washington (D.C.). She continued to volunteer and preach at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston during her retirement, even while continuing to be in demand worldwide as a preacher.Retired Bishop Suffragan Barbara Harris leads the Diocese of Massachusetts in singing hymns during its 2014 electing convention. Photo: Matthew Cavanaugh/Diocese of MassachusettsIn 2003, the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts dedicated its newly built Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference Center in Greenfield, New Hampshire, in her honor, and in November of 2019, the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta (Georgia) launched the Bishop Barbara C. Harris Justice Project, aimed at strengthening the church’s efforts to address social injustice.Harris published two books, Hallelujah, Anyhow!, a memoir written with Kelly Brown Douglas (2018, Church Publishing, Inc.), and the sermon collection Parting Words: A Farewell Discourse (2003, Cowley Publications). She is also featured in In Conversation: Michael Curry and Barbara Harris, edited by Fredrica Harris Thompsett (2017, Church Publishing, Inc.).Harris is survived by her brother, Thomas Harris, and his wife, Jennifer, of Homestead, Florida, and their family; and dear friends, including Dorothy Cousins and goddaughter Pat Cousins Smith of Philadelphia and their families.Massachusetts Bishop Alan Gates remembrance of Harris’s life is posted here, with an invitation to submit your own remembrance.Messages of condolence for Bishop Harris’s family also may be sent in care of the Office of the Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, 138 Tremont Street, Boston MA 02111.

All Blacks win Rugby Championship with bonus point win over Argentina

first_imgMonday Sep 29, 2014 All Blacks win Rugby Championship with bonus point win over Argentina The All Blacks retained the Rugby Championship with a game to spare after claiming a 34-13 bonus point victory over Argentina on Saturday. Next weekend’s fixture against South Africa shifts to a matter of pride, rather than the title being on the line.The win in La Plata secured a third successive Rugby Championship title for the World Champions, who scored tries through Ben Smith, Israel Dagg, Julian Savea and TJ Perenara.Despite there being one match left to play between the All Blacks and the Springboks in Johannesburg, even a bonus-point victory for the hosts will leave them a point behind the leaders, and now winners, of the the 2014 edition of the southern hemisphere quadrangular tournament.Richie McCaw said post match that finding motivation certainly won’t be a problem when it comes to facing their arch rivals at Ellis Park this coming Saturday. “It won’t take much. When the All Blacks play South Africa, especially in South Africa, that’s one of the games you live for so the boys will enjoy tonight and then look forward to next week.”The skipper acknowledged Argentina’s part in what was a good contest, despite the final scoreline.“The Pumas came to play and it was a pretty good match to watch because both teams came to play, I’m just proud the guys took their chances. We defended really well and didn’t let them across the line until the end and I’m really proud of the guys because it really showed their backbone.”View quick highlights below (better will be updated if possible), and on page two you can get a look inside the sheds with the New Zealand team after the match, and hear their thoughts on the victoryADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error The Rugby Championship Related Articles 140 WEEKS AGO Sam Cane suffers broken neck in win over… 305 WEEKS AGO Awesome Argentina upset sloppy Springboks… 305 WEEKS AGO Australia stun New Zealand to win the 2015… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_img IranMiddle East – North Africa Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Receive email alerts News Reporters Without Borders was recently told about the particularly desperate plight of Mehdi Hossinzadeh, a detained journalist who, according to his family, has been tortured. The authorities have said nothing about his case since his arrest on 31 July. News IranMiddle East – North Africa to go further News A UN general assembly committee has expressed deep concern about “serious ongoing and recurring human rights violations” in Iran, especially in the crackdown following President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s disputed election in June. In a strongly-worded resolution on 20 November, the human rights committee accused the government of stepping up its use of torture, flogging, amputation and other forms of cruel and inhuman punishment. Another journalist, Ahmad Zeydabadi, was sentenced today to five years in prison followed by exile on the northeastern city of Gonabad. At the same time, the amount of bail for a provision release was increased to 350 million toman (260,000 euros). Jila Baniyaghoob, a journalist who was held from 20 June to 19 August, says she is very worried about her husband, fellow journalist Bahaman Ahamadi Amoee, who was arrested the same day as she was and is still being held. The authorities in Tehran’s Evin prison have not been providing any information about detainees to their families or lawyers since the 12 June presidential election. June 9, 2021 Find out more Journalists continue to be harassed while in prison. They can be interrogated at any time. New charges can be brought against them. They can be denied family visits for no clear reason. They can be put in solitary confinement for one wrong word, and they can be denied medical treatment. March 18, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information center_img After spending more than 65 days in solitary confinement in Evin prison, he was transferred to a wing with other inmates. But then, after just a week in cell 350, he was put back in solitary confinement, in section 209 of the prison. See a TV interview yesterday with Newsweek correspondent Maziar Bahari about the four months he spent in prison in Iran: Organisation “I saw him last Monday,” Baniyaghoob told Reporters Without Borders. “He was very ill with fever. We are very worried by the lack of medical care. More than five months have gone by since Bahaman’s arrest, and his lawyer has still not been able to see him or have access to his case file.” Bastani, Norbakhsh, Foroshani, Abtahi and Zeydabadi were all convicted in the course of the Stalinist-style political trials that have been taking place in Tehran since August. Their lawyers were not allowed to see them or examine the prosecution case files and they were represented in court by lawyers appointed by the prosecutor-general who are linked to the intelligence services. During these sham trials, they were also forced to read out confessions that had been extracted under duress. Mohammad Ali Abtahi, a cleric known as “blogging Mullah” who was serving a six-year jail sentence, was freed yesterday on payment of a record bail amount of 700 million toman (520,000 euros). A deputy minister in former President Mohammad Khatami’s government and an adviser to opposition candidate Mehdi Karoubi, he was arrested at his Tehran home on 16 June and spent 161 days in detention. RSF_en Follow the news on Iran Aghaei, who also edits the blog Azad Tribun, is the third Farhikhteghan journalist to be arrested since the election. The other two, Masoud Bastani and Reza Norbakhsh, the newspaper’s editor, have both been given six-year jail sentences. News After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists “Despite such clear condemnation from the United Nations, the Iranian authorities continue to torture journalists and try them without any transparency, behind closed doors,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The UN general assembly must follow up this committee’s work by adopting a resolution denouncing the lack of transparency in the ongoing political trials and the illegal and arbitrary sentences being passed on opposition activists and journalists.” November 23, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Five journalists convicted, another arrested and one released Reza Rafiee Foroshani, a freelance journalist who works for Iranian and international news media, has meanwhile just been given a seven-year jail sentence, plus a suspended sentence of another five years in prison, on a spying charge. The latest journalist to be detained is Sasan Aghaei of the daily newspaper Farhikhteghan, who was arrested yesterday at his Tehran home by intelligence ministry officials after they had carried out a search. It is not known where he was taken. February 25, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
