Gambling. Belgian fights overweight again, Real enthusiasts offer Balea enthusiasts…

first_imgLast summer, the Belgian national team became the most expensive reinforcement in the history of the Madrid Grand Club. Fans were thrilled with his arrival, but Hazard’s not-ideal physical form slowed their euphoria a little. “Did we really pay that much money for such a fat man?” They asked.Cut, we are moving to the present. Hazard has had his first season in a White Ballet jersey. Although he finished it with a league title, he did not contribute to it as expected. He had problems with the knee and ankle with which he had to have surgery. He missed twenty-two matches due to injury. It was very difficult for him to get into the form, as evidenced by only one goal scored and six assists.“I realize that, from an individual point of view, it was my worst season,” admitted the bronze medalist from the last world championship.VIDEO: The biggest kick in the history of football? The Belgian stood alone with the ball in front of the goal, but trippedThe former Chelsea player is known to have problems maintaining his lifestyle. He can really enjoy his summer vacation, he will definitely not despise good food. He still seems to be struggling with a lack of physical fitness and a slight overweight. Again after a year, this is shown by photographs from the training, in which the Belgian has a similarly raised abdomen as a year ago.Roberto Martínez also added confirmation, who did not let him on the lawn for a minute during the last national team meeting. “He is not yet in full condition,” said the coach of the Belgian national team. A few days later, however, footage from the Real Madrid club gym appeared on social networks. Gambling apparently decided to go inside and catch up with a physical shortage, because he is exemplary in the video.12. september 2020 at 14:58, post archived: 13. september 2020 at 20:08The White Ballet hopes to transfer a similar determination to the court. From the most expensive acquisition of club history, corresponding performances supported by statistics are simply expected.Bale leaving?While breaking the stick over Hazard would be premature, ending the collaboration with Gareth Bal will benefit both parties. The Welsh star has not been talked about in recent months in connection with football, but with spending time on golf and public provocations by club management and coach Zinedin Zidan.“My future is entirely in the hands of the club. To be honest, they make it very difficult. Last year, they blocked all offers at the last possible second. I still have the motivation to play football, but I can’t do anything on my own, “Bale sighed.Will Gareth Bale stay at Real Madrid?Recent reports, however, suggest that the release of the 31-year-old footballer is closer than ever. According to information from the British media, Real Welsh wants to get rid of it before the start of the season. In addition, it offers a potential concession to potential applicants. If someone buys Balea from the contract, the Madrid giant will pay half of his salary, seven million euros, over the next two years.There are less than three weeks left until the end of the transfer period, so there is still plenty of time. The White Ballet will enter the season on Sunday at Real Sociedad. Will Bale be there? And will Hazard finally show its indisputable qualities?last_img read more

Daniel Graetzer – Mediatech Solutions – Building effective international expansion…

first_img Daniel GraetzerDaniel Graetzer Executive Director of Mediatech Solutions speaks to SBC on the realities of creating industry platform services and provisions for effective international expansion. Focusing on delivering a tailored product for each individual  market, Mediatech Solutions has won a number of new international  clients. Graetzer who heads up strategy for the platform provider details what core factors stakeholders must asses when delivering gambling services to new and developing markets.   __________________________________ SBC: Hi Daniel, great to catch up. Mediatech Solutions (MTS) has won a number of international platform contracts in 2016. How has your team achieved these wins?Daniel Graetzer : Through a combination of hard work and offering the best product on the market. Our next-generation IRIS platform is a genuine game-changer, and operators all over the world are realising its potential. They are particularly drawn to its flexibility and we make sure we offer a tailored product for each market.It has also been about building strong relationships in markets across the world. In recent weeks I’ve been to Panama, Romania, Philippines, Peru, Nigeria and a number of other emerging markets. There is really no substitute for talking to customers in these jurisdictions and gaining an understanding of each region’s unique challenges and demands.SBC: MTS has placed a high emphasis on extending its services in developing betting/igaming markets. When entering these markets, what factors did you have to consider in terms of MTS services and capabilities for developing markets? DG: Many of the emerging markets that are beginning to regulate online gaming already have a strong land-based heritage. So, our omni-channel expertise, combined with our partners at R Franco who have more than 50 years of experience in land-based supply, is a really strong selling point. Omni-channel often provides a good entry into these markets so we continue to focus on that side of the product.SBC: How has your experience in MTS home market of Spain, helped you extend your platform provisions within developing markets?DG: Spain is an extremely interesting market. It is emerging as one of the most important in Europe now, but I think it is fair to say it has taken some time to reach this stage. It was only last year that online slots could be offered for the first time, and now online revenues are growing impressively. Our experience in Spain is definitely helping us in developing markets elsewhere. Latin America is an obvious target, but we find that the regulatory challenge posed in Spain also puts us in a strong position to pitch in many emerging markets.SBC: From a commercial perspective what are developing market operators valuing in terms of platform services and provisions?DG: It is all about flexibility. If you look at a lot of the emerging markets which are beginning to introduce online regulation, operators face very different challenges to those they face in the major European jurisdictions. Product is often heavily restricted in these regions, regulation is massively complex and customer preferences are very different. Operators understand that an out-of-the-box solution designed for Western Europe will not work for them. Our job is to provide them with the tools to create the kind of offer which can succeed.SBC: Looking at industry technology, are current industry platform provisions too structured to provide effective services for developing markets such as Africa and South America?DG: I would say so. Africa and South America are developing extremely quickly. It isn’t just the regulation, it is the technology and player preferences too. Take Nigeria as an example: retail pool-betting dominated for many years, but now new verticals including sports betting, virtual sports and lottery are challenging the old order. Any operator locked into a turn-key provider is not going to survive if it cannot adapt to the new market reality.SBC: Finally, how do you see MTS services for developing markets progressing in the coming months?DG: We will continue to develop our flagship IRIS platform and the accompanying land-based project, Candy. We’ll have some exciting new deals to talk about later in the year. IRIS’s modules are decoupled and all our APIs are available for integration, so as well as offering total flexibility to operators, we are also in a position to adapt the platform as technology progresses. We don’t see IRIS as a static platform – it is always evolving and improving, and that is absolutely vital in emerging markets.___________________________Daniel Graetzer Mediatech Solutions  Executive Director Share Submit StumbleUpon BtoBet refines African SMS payment options with Tola Mobile  August 20, 2020 Related Articles Winamax maintains Granada CF sponsorship despite bleak Spanish outlook August 19, 2020 Share Andrea Vota – Jdigital’s challenge of Spanish restrictions is led by logic and rationale August 13, 2020last_img read more

Some included playful or self-deprecating remarks.Independent radio station Ekho Moskvy estimated that unsanctioned rallies in 82 cities and towns assembled 60,000 opposition supporters, in what may be the biggest anti-Kremlin protest since 2008. Leader of the anti-corruption movement Alexei Navalny’s spokesperson, Kira Yarmysh, told Interfax the opposition leader had been placed under arrest until Monday, when a hearing is to be held.The deputy director of Navalny’s organization, the Fund for Combatting Corruption (FBK), which had called for the protests, said the organization’s offices had also been raided by police. The FBK conducts investigations into senior Russian officials and releases its findings in slick, irreverent videos. The protest today was organized to demand that Russian authorities look into the fund’s latest investigation, released this month, which alleged that Russian prime minister and ex-president Dmitry Medvdev had amassed a massive property empire using a corrupt scheme based on phones charities.The investigation alleged Medvedev had built himself vast mansions, bought vineyards and yachts worth as much as a $1 billion. The video laying out the investigation has been watched by at least 9 million people. Authorities have ignored the claims and refused to investigate.The allegations around Medvedev appear to have struck a chord in Russia, as pressure on freedom of expression has reached a peak at the same time people’s living standards have fallen.The demonstrations followed protests in neighboring Belarus on Saturday against that country’s president, Alexander Lukashenko, who has ruled the small, landlocked country since 1994.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Safety in schools

first_imgIn some schools in the USA, metal detectors are common as sometimes the presence of a Police patrol on the outskirts. Some may be tempted to ask why in a country that is rich and is the bastion of freedom and democracy. Others may counter that, exactly because of what the country represents, it can afford to have such mechanisms in place. The answer basically lies in trying to curb violence in schools.While the measures may appear to some as being extreme, given what unfortunately happened in the past where lives were senselessly lost to bullets, it may be deemed inadequate. After all, it hasn’t stopped. Other menaces are bullying and gang-related violence. These are the harsh realities in some institutions of learning there with an obvious negative impact on the student population involved.It is not confined to there and is prevalent in many other places. Here, Guyana is trying to come to grips with a seemingly new reality of gun violence recently perpetrated against the Principal of a leading private school – that might have stemmed from frightening threats on social media allegedly by someone who may have been a part of that school’s family. Even more frightening is that the threats are being renewed.Whatever the grouse, in the end: the Principal is injured and hospitalised; classes have been suspended naturally out of concern for safety; and fear has crept into the minds of students, parents, and staff. The Police have since announced deployment at city schools. Who would have thought that in the process of getting an education here is Guyana, safety in schools is becoming a primary concern? With the threats in question, it seems rightfully so.Some signs lurked to warn about violence in schools, but maybe not to that extent. Some time before the shooting, there were reports of a teacher who was severely beaten reportedly by a student. Over time, there were other reports of students being stabbed by others or hurt by other means. Bullying, which is just another form of abuse and even violence, was reported to be highly prevalent in many schools.Those represent reported cases as the understanding is many are unreported out of fear of repercussion. In some schools, there is reportedly a visible presence of known gangs, which are identified by particular colours. Some of the violence meted out allegedly results from the initiation process. There were published articles over the menacing presence of two particular gangs in parts of the country which have infiltrated some schools.While the gangs and the reason for the Principal being shot may not be related, the sum total is that the chance of being hurt in school has increased over time. Solace must not be taken in the fact that we are living in a changing world. For once so rationalised, then what unfortunately happened to the Principal could be accepted as the new routine. Violence over the years and its extensive coverage in the media have led to a seeming immunity to the gory images and now make for casual reading.This must not be allowed to slip into the mindset of students and teachers. They must be free from such psychological stress and be able to focus on learning to build much-needed capacity for the future of the country. All, especially the relevant authorities, have an integral role to play in helping to repel this scourge.While there may be compelling arguments over what may be the reasons perpetrators act the way they do and the spread of violence, immediate mitigating measures have to be derived and implemented, so despicable acts such as the shooting in question must not be repeated.The Police presence, while welcomed and a potential deterrent, may not be enough in the long term as sustainability could become an issue. It has to be supported by other means, particularly in schools deemed to be high-risk. Even in that, the unexpected can happen in one deemed to be of no risk. The situation, therefore, becomes much more complicated in a country of very limited related resources.Many have argued that parents and guardians need to be more involved and aware of what their children are doing, keeping an eye on any possible worrying sign. While that could still be effective in many ways, there is a challenge as the child approaches adulthood. At that stage, one’s space and privacy could present barriers. There are also social factors that contribute to disallowing such necessary intervention to some extent. That further complicates an already-complicated situation.Currently, the fear that prevails within the mindsets of parents, students, and teachers of the school in question is understandable. They would need guidance, reassurance and solutions in both the short and long term. The situation would probably demand the establishment of a non-partisan special task force comprising skilled personnel from the relevant sections of Government and civil society to examine and recommend practical solutions within the shortest possible time.Whatever the findings are, the resources must be found to implement the necessary measures given what’s at stake. If not, the fun in learning could be evaporated if it hasn’t begun already, through a sad and unwelcomed import from up north.last_img read more
