The presence of Cristiano Ronaldo, who moved from Spanish First Division club Real Madrid to Juventus in Italy, has made Serie A hot broadcast property for Indian television.Sony Pictures Network India, the official and exclusive broadcaster for the Italian First Division League in India, has from this season become pro-active with the Serie A promotions. Until a year ago, the league was on the lowest pedestal of SPN’s priority to promote and leverage top-flight global football leagues broadcast.

The broadcaster though has regained broadcast rights for select LaLiga matches in a content-sharing deal with Facebook, Serie A has not lost its charm. Cristiano Ronaldo is the prime factor for this premium the broadcaster is putting on the Italian First Division football competition.Also Read: LaLiga back on television in India with Sony-Facebook dealSony Pictures Network India had acquired the rights to broadcast Serie A in India in a three-season deal from 2015-16 to 2017-18 for approximately $ 500,000 – the lowest Indian television media rights deals for European league football.The league which invoked little interest from Sony beyond customary broadcast for the first two seasons has turned out to be a valuable property for the broadcaster.“LaLiga loss to Facebook would have potentially created a big hole in Sony’s football rights basket. Initially, Serie A was one option to do some damage control. Few would have expected or foreseen Ronaldo’s impactful move to Juventus, worthy of putting a considerable premium on Serie A commercial values. That is one major factor that Sony this time is also investing to promote the Italian top division league, which otherwise invoked little interest,” says sports business veteran and Sporty Solytionz Chief Executive Ashish Chadha.Also Read: Real Madrid ready to pay record $343.5 mn for Neymar JrJuventus-Lazio, Napoli-AC Milan and Inter Milan-Torino are the three games over this weekend, with Ronaldo-led Juventus starting the campaign Lazion tomorrow (Saturday) from 9:30 pm (India time) on Sony Ten 2 and Sony Ten 2 HD.Sony will have to be ready to pay the premium for this new-found status of Serie A. The rights will be up for grabs after this season, and the broadcaster knows it will not more be a $500,000 deal.

Hotshot: Northampton lock Alex Coles

first_imgMeet the Saints second-row who is balancing pro rugby with a politics degree Making ground: Alex Coles charges upfield for Northampton Saints (Getty Images) Northampton lock Alex Coles Date of birth 21 September 1999 Born Cambridge Club Northampton Position Second-row Country EnglandWhen did you first play rugby? I was about ten. I started at Newmarket. My dad played when he was younger whereas I’d always played football and cricket, so he said I should try rugby.Did you like it straightaway? It took me a bit of time. I was always one of the taller people in my year and when that started to be advantageous in rugby, when I was around 13, I really enjoyed it.I moved around clubs – Newmarket, Shelford and Cambridge – and I played all three sports until I was 16, which is when I focused on rugby.When did you link up with Saints? I was picked up from my school, The Perse, at about 14 or 15 through the academy. I took it more seriously when I was 16.Have you always been a lock? I played a bit at No 8 at school and a couple of times I went into the backs for fun, but it’s second-row now. I’ve grown into it.What are your strengths? I think I’m relatively mobile for a second-row and that I’ve got a good lineout game. That’s something I’m trying to work on. Then just my game understanding, knowing where to be around the pitch and making good decisions. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img This article originally appeared in the November 2020 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Any childhood heroes? A big one was Thierry Henry. From a rugby point of view, Courtney Lawes was always someone I watched growing up. I liked the way he played and was involved in every facet. Fortunately I’ve had a chance to play alongside him, which has been awesome.Who have been the biggest influences on your career? Peter Walton, the former England age-group forwards coach, really helped in terms of encouraging me to focus on things I’m best at rather than just improving things I need to work at. He gave me confidence.At Saints, Phil Dowson has helped me with that transition from the academy to men’s rugby and Premiership rugby.What are your goals for the next year? To try to nail down a position in the Saints team. There’s healthy competition in the second row but I don’t want to be seen as a promising player coming up in 12 months, I want to make a mark and make a starting position my own. I get on well with the other second-rows and we all drive and push each other.Do you study outside of rugby? I’m in the second year of a part-time course in politics, philosophy and history at Birkbeck University in London. I went to an academic school and my dad is quite academic, so that was always my main focus as a kid. I’ve always enjoyed learning and keeping myself ticking over, plus it’s important as a back-up option if rugby doesn’t go to plan.RW Verdict: He’s represented England U16, U18, U19 and U20, and has made his Premiership breakthrough over the past year. He suffered an ankle injury after lockdown but should continue his excellent progress in the 2020-21 season.last_img read more

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply I am hearing big logs being dropped somewhere nearby……….. Mama Mia Mama Mia Reply Mama Mia October 15, 2017 at 7:53 pm Reply James 1958, they came last night? Night time bobcat work in Summerset, really? LOL I wasn’t home last night. Wow….did they get everybody’s debris picked up there? We haven’t seen the big truck as of yet today……still hoping, fingers crossed. Reply October 16, 2017 at 12:01 am We exited the 429 and headed west on highway 50 toward going to Clermont the other day, and we were looking to see hurricane debris piled up along the highway, and looked to see damage from Irma while we were heading that way. Honestly, there was no debris at all along 50 all the way well into Clermont. I did not see any damage either except one sign blown out, and one old very large oak tree downed in a field. That was it. I even asked did Irma come through there? I knew of course, Irma came through there, but it was clean as a whistle along that route. James1958 Reply Mama Mia James 1958, We rode through Summerset subdivision and I saw the bobcat parked there near the intersection of Wells and Martin Streets off to the side. I thought oh, that is where it went. We drove on through, and saw a whole bunch of piles, and got on down to near Lake Av. still in the subdivision, and saw one of the claw trucks. Still hoping they are coming back to our street soon….. October 16, 2017 at 7:49 pm October 15, 2017 at 5:31 pm Mama Mia Mama Mia I am going to take a black magic marker and write on the end of my oak tree’s cut stump facing the cul-de-sac in my yard…..DO NOT REMOVE THIS STUMP…!!! I never thought about them trying to remove that. I can always spray the end of the wood with a solid black or brown paint after this debris removal ends, if it will prevent them from loosening my big cabbage palm and causing it to fall with the bobcat. This guy knows now, but there might be another one to come back around, who knows? The palm is about 15 years old. It was next to the blackjack oak tree when it partially uprooted, and went forward into the road in 2004. The palm then leaned toward the road too, but it straighten its self out with the sun. It is pretty good size, and I didn’t expect any problems where it is located, until today’s FEMA inspired “earthquake”…….. October 16, 2017 at 10:49 am Mama Mia Reply HURRICANE IRMA STORM DEBRIS UPDATEFrom the City of ApopkaTrucks and trailers are working across Apopka, with a newly expanded capacity of collecting up to 8,000 cubic yards of Hurricane Irma storm debris each day.Two new, double-loader vehicles began work in Apopka on Wednesday, bringing the total number of debris collection vehicles to six double-loaders and one single-loader. These vehicles are operated by the City’s outside storm debris contractor.Nearly 40,000 cubic yards have been collected so far by three city claw trucks and the outside contractor’s seven trucks. The contractor expects another double-loader truck to arrive next week, helping to accelerate clean-up work. Also, up to six new bucket trucks are scheduled to arrive next week to focus on hard-to-reach, damaged or hanging tree limbs.Crews currently are working in Rock Springs Ridge, Wekiva Glen, Pines of Wekiva, Sheeler Oaks and Piedmont Lakes. The City of Apopka has an estimated 200,000 cubic yards of storm debris remaining.As a result of these large vehicles needed for debris removal, residents are asked to follow these guidelines:• Please make every effort to keep the street clear of parked cars when debris crews are in your area.• Please help to keep storm drains clear. Residents can help aid the debris collection by sweeping up loose leaves and debris after each pass.• Please place debris between the curb and the sidewalk. Avoid placing debris in the street, near mailboxes, fire hydrants, or on top of water mains or electric transformers or underneath power lines or cable wires.• Please keep hurricane tree debris in its own pile.• Please keep bagged leaves & debris, construction debris, fencing, furniture, appliances or anything else separated from hurricane tree debris piles. This will help with the disposal process.Photos from The City of Apopka’s Facebook Page. Reply Okay, I am happy to report that the hurricane debris contractor, FEMA approved, I assume, came and made a visit to our street, just a little while ago, with a bobcat running around. We were like yeah, they came to remove the stuff! We watched the bobcat operator run around, and what he did was pick up a bunch of each neighbor’s piles, not all neighbors however, but he took the other’s stuff that was in their yards, over to one neighbor’s already existing pile, and piled all the other neighbor’s debris onto their pile, in front of their yard. I know that neighbor must love that. He got a lot of the debris, including the big log chunks we had at the cul-de-sac in front of the oak tree where the stump is still in the ground, and which was not removed, because it helps support the big cabbage palm that is behind it. The oak had been damaged previously in the hurricanes of 2004, can’t remember which hurricane, because there were so many, but the oak had been pushed over out into the road then by the force of the hurricane winds. This hurricane we cut the big limbs back, that was further damaged from Irma. However, we left the stump, as I said, to help support the palm. Well, the guy on the bobcat scooped up the big logs, and I was inside cooking, and stepped outside, and I look and I see my big cabbage palm shaking like there is an earthquake going on, and I thought, “oh no, surely he isn’t trying to lift up the oak stump that grows under the palm, as it is still in the ground” ( we left it there on purpose)….I told my husband, as he was up the street, and he talked to my neighbors, who were watching from their yards, and he asked them, did they see it shake, and they all said yeah. I mean, Ray Charles could have seen that it was still in the ground, and not out there to pick up….. Then our other neighbors saw that he was just getting tree debris, and they all came out front to their pile, and started sorting the fencing and other stuff they had piled all together, and the bobcat guy leaves, and goes on somewhere else, and there is other piles of debris that were out and sorted already and he didn’t even touch those that were branches only and logs. ??????? This past Thursday was 5 weeks since any branches or log debris have been removed on this street by the contractors and then Friday, Sat, and now today, they came, and tried to lift our oak tree that was still in the ground out from under our big cabbage palm…LOL Geesh! Plus, the debris is just piled up differently now, and no truck has come to remove it yet, so far today. Who can figure this system out? They started doing that last night in Summerset , today they were back, the guy driving the bobcat was consolidating piles, at 12:45 this afternoon the big truck came up the street and picked up all the consolidated piles, they are gone hoo – ray finally now we can get back to normal . Thank the Lord When you drive by the Seventh Day Adventist grounds over on 436 at Forest City area, and see all those mountains of mulch, that they have already ground up from the hurricane debris, it is a lot. That is one of the Seminole Co. drop off debris area, I understand. Coming down the road, you can smell that a half mile away. That is how it smelled over at the port, when I was going out on the Sun Cruz, after the 2004 hurricanes, and that area’s debris was piled beyond mountains high, and was being loaded onto ships, or maybe it was barges, headed to Japan, for some use they wanted it for, I was told. A really weird smell. 16 COMMENTScenter_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here October 16, 2017 at 9:37 am October 16, 2017 at 10:48 am Reply I’ve got my tree stump marked with Do Not Remove…..okay, this will take care of it, if another bobcat operator tries to lift it up and take it away….I think, unless another different bobcat operator is one who can’t read English, and might be Hispanic. I really don’t know how to write that message on my stump in Spanish. Hahahahaha…..don’t start with me now…… That same route on highway 50 had a bad tornado years ago, I can’t remember what the name of the road is that you turn to go south that leads to Knox Nursery, at the corner convenient store off of 50, but my mama and I drove that way, to see the tornado damage, that year, and the entire area looked like devastation trail, it was so bad. The corner store was messed up and closed and boarded up. The sign blown out. The large trees all along there were leafless and broken to pieces, like Halloween looking trees, there was even a sofa in the top of an barren oak tree, and all kinds of people’s belongings everywhere. There were items impaled into the telephone poles. At Hyde Park, on the north side of highway 50, which is a mobile home park, it was closed off to tornado sight seekers, and someone was killed there in the park when the tornado hit. Really bad……! I can’t remember what year that was. My mama and I used to go everywhere together, and look at all kinds of things. Another year there was an intense hail storm over in Sanford, and we went over there, and there were vehicles with dents all over them, some windows broken on homes, shingles messed up on homes, business signs broken, and what surprised me was how the plants, bushes, and trees all looked. It looked like all the leaves of the plants and trees had been put into a vegetable chopper or salad spinner. Totally shredded, and looked more like confetti lying around than leaf matter. Please enter your comment! Actually Pence as president scares me too. Reply Reply Wow….a reward of $10 million dollars has been offered by a man who has ran a full page ad in the Washington Post newspaper to anyone who has information on an impeachable offense by Trump. Dirt on Trump. Whatever you think of the man who ran the ad, regardless, you really owe it to yourself to read his full page ad he furnished to the Washington Post to be published. Now that is putting his money where his mouth is! There were things that I learned about the electoral college regarding how the “antique” system worked during our last election and how certain people were counted as only partial votes, even though those people could not vote (the slaves) in the past, and how certain other states (Wyoming, for example) came out on top, which means that their state’s people were valued at more than other state’s people, thus violating ” the one man, one vote rule”, and well, just read it yourself. Google the full page ad in the Washington Post that Larry Flynt ran to get possible evidence of an impeachable offense against Trump…..fingers crossed! Reply Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom October 16, 2017 at 10:38 am Mama Mia Mama Mia October 16, 2017 at 9:40 am October 16, 2017 at 12:18 am Okay, I just saw the bobcat run back down our street, and he piled our other neighbor’s debris onto the other big pile…..are we having fun, or what? It must be getting close to the time for the big claw truck to come to our street! The excitement is in the air! Wheeeeee……. Mama Mia Reply However, the above post also worries me too. If Trump thinks that someone is trying to impeach him, he may start a new war just to stay in office. I think there is some clause that a president can stay on if the country is at a declared war, although we are currently fighting ISIS and some others…. Don’t know exactly how it is??? UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Mama Mia October 15, 2017 at 3:38 pm Reply Mama Mia October 16, 2017 at 10:32 am October 16, 2017 at 10:44 am Reply The big double decker black trailer with the claw just came to our street. The top of the trailer almost scraped the street light power lines. It was the California company, the tall trailer pulled by the white Dodge Ram truck 3500. They are ham-scam, if you ask me. They dropped bunches of stuff as they were clawing it into the trailer. Stuff falling all over the street. Our street actually looked better before this bunch came around. There is stuff all over the street. My husband got the push broom, and tried to make the street look better, but it was starting to get dark when they came around. They didn’t even get it all. They left stuff still in the piles. Messy, messy, messy is all I can say. Those big trucks also left some kind of motor fluid all over the street. They had the equipment they needed, but they didn’t seem to give a happy! Actually these outfits are too big for some of these streets. There were two here, and there was no room. I don’t mean to be critical, but the city needs to know how their contractors work is going. The smaller company that compiled the piles together did a lot better job, and was cleaner, the one that had the bobcat. It really makes me appreciate our own city crews that remove debris normally every week, because they are more careful, not as careless, and don’t leave those kinds of messes behind.

Emergency appeal from the Baltimore People’s Power Assembly

first_imgDemand Justice for Freddie Grey! Indict, Convict & Jail Killer Police!AMNESTY FOR ALL JAILED YOUTHPhoto : Richard ReillyApproximately 350 people have been arrested in Baltimore stemming from the April 24 protests that spilled into the night both in downtown Baltimore and at the Western District Police Station. Police donned riot gear and charged into young protesters in both places. In the neighborhood where Freddie Grey was murdered, police chased youth, clubbed people and formed phalanxes that swept the streets.We have yet to find out the extent of the charges that many of these youth are being held on. Legal support is being organized and youth are slowly being released. At this moment, many remain in jail.Solidarity with arrested youth critical!It is most important that we stand in solidarity with these young people and that we demand amnesty and their release from jail.The anger, pent-up frustration and rage that many people across this country have witnessed on their television screens is based on decades of racist abuse and neglect in communities all across Baltimore.It is about police terror. It is also about unemployment and low wages, decaying housing and lack of services. Just two weeks prior to Grey’s murder, the city announced water shutoffs to 25,000 households.The Baltimore People’s Power Assembly, which has been organizing against police terror for many years, has heard first-hand accounts from youths as young as 12 years old who have been handcuffed and driven around in police cruisers, terrorized and then released. Women have spoken to us about sexual assaults by police. Beatings and shakedowns are common.Freddie Grey is not the first victim of police murder in this mostly Black city. His name is added to a long list of victims: Tyrone West, Darin Hutchins, Anthony Anderson, George King, Maurice Johnson and many others.We cannot allow the city, police or media to divide us. We cannot equate property damage with the loss of human life. Freddie Grey cannot be brought back to his family or friends; a window can be repaired.‘Outside agitators’: a diversionThe Baltimore People’s Power Assembly, whose organizers have lived in this city for decades, welcome all those who want to come to Baltimore in solidarity with the people. We understand that police terror and structural racism is a national problem and that it is not confined just to our city.The Baltimore Police Department and mayor have used the “outside agitator” card to distract attention from the real issue of indicting, convicting and jailing the six police officers who killed Freddie Grey. If the mayor is indeed worried about “outsiders,” then get the cops out of the community, the majority of whom do not live in the city and who constitute a virtual occupation army. We say, tell Gov. Hogan to withdraw the state police, whom he has deployed.Please call the mayor, police commissioner and state’s attorney to demand:Justice for Freddie Grey — indict, convict and jail killer police.In this crucial hour, we demand full amnesty for all arrestees, their release from jail, and an end to police repression and arrests.For those who would like to contribute to the struggle for justice, we have set up two Paypal accounts:One is for general protest expenses, which include flyers, posters, banners, food, water and other supplies: tinyurl.com/BaltoProtestFundAnd a special legal defense fund: tinyurl.com/BaltoLegalFund2011 Charles St.Baltimore, MD 21218443-221-3775Please note that the Baltimore Peoples Assembly is using the spelling “Grey” in respect of Freddie Carlos Grey, who spelled his name with an “e”, and the many friends and family in the community who have confirmed this.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Farm Bureau Still Laser Focused on WOTUS

first_img By Andy Eubank – Jan 11, 2015 Facebook Twitter Farm Bureau Still Laser Focused on WOTUS Facebook Twitter SHARE Stallman Villwock on WOTUSNearly 5,000 of the nation’s farmers are gathered in San Diego for the annual convention of American Farm Bureau, and during his Sunday morning address President Bob Stallman went right to work identifying the work the largest farm group in the country needs to continue as they fight over-regulation.“As damaging as the weather or economic winds can be, farmers’ and ranchers’ biggest challenges these days seem to come from their government. Over the past year, Farm Bureau members have come together like never before to fight the attempt to regulate nearly every drop of rainwater that falls. Under their Waters of the U.S. proposed rule, agencies want to sweep into federal jurisdiction, vast numbers of small, isolated wetlands, ponds and, yes, ditches.”Following the address Indiana Farm Bureau President Don Villwock said he is still concerned about the proposed Waters of the U.S. despite legislation passed by Congress recently that would prevent funding of that rule’s implementation.“I don’t trust EPA to come out or revise their rules even with all the comments that they got,” he told HAT. “I really think it’s a critical issue and I still say it’s the biggest land grab by United States government in the history of this country. It’s not good for agriculture, it’s not good for the environment, and it’s sure not good for consumers.”And he said Indiana members should still be vocal on the issue.“Well I just think it’s critical every time they have the opportunity to visit with their legislators, even with their neighbors and the press back home in Indiana that they bring it up that we are opposed to the definition of navigable waters which I think all of us grew up thinking that’s a place where you can take a boat, a canoe, or a kayak. In the Corps of Engineers’ mind, or EPA’s mind, that could be a stream that is just as large as your little finger.”In other Indiana convention news, Jeremy Barron advanced to the sweet 16 round of Young Farmer Discussion Meet competition and finds out Monday if he advances to the final four.

Case round-up

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Case round-upOn 26 Nov 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. This week’s case round-upTips can count towards wages Nerva and others v United Kingdom 2002, IRLR 815 ECHRn The applicants were all waiters. Any cash tips from customers were collectedand distributed to waiters proportionately at the end of each week, but anytips left by cheque or credit card were paid to the employees as part of theirwages. These tips were described as ‘additional pay’ on payslips, and weresubject to PAYE deductions.The employees sought to challenge their employer’s practice ofcounting the tips towards their statutory minimum remuneration. The Court ofAppeal held that legal property in the cheque and credit card tips passed fromthe customer to the employer, and could therefore count towards the minimumremuneration.The employees complained to the European Court of Human Rights,alleging that the Court’s decision was contrary to the right to peacefulenjoyment of possessions, under the Convention on Human Rights.The ECHR ruled that there had been no breach of the employees’convention rights. The employer had complied with its obligation to pay aminimum wage, and the employees could not claim that their remuneration shouldbe calculated without tips.While the legal basis for this decision appears sound, thebroader moral question of customers’ intentions when leaving tips was alsoconsidered by the court.Transsexual discrimination A v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police and another 2002, EWCA Civ1584, Court of Appealn The legal rights of transsexuals have been further reinforced by this recentdecision.Ms A, a male to female transsexual, applied to join the police.Her application was declined on the basis that she would be unable to performall the required duties, since she remained legally male and would not be permittedto search female detainees. Ms A brought a claim of sex discrimination. The police arguedthat conformity of legal and apparent gender was a “genuine occupationalqualification” for the job (s7(2) Sex Discrimination Act 1975), but thetribunal disagreed. The police successfully appealed to the EAT. Ms A appealedto the Court of Appeal, citing the recent European case of Goodwin v UK, whichruled that a post-operative male to female transsexual was entitled to beregarded as legally female. The appeal was upheld. Following Goodwin, it was nolonger possible to regard Ms A as being other than female, except perhaps incircumstances where there were significant factors of public interest to weighagainst the interests of the individual. The police could not refuse Ms Aemployment on the grounds of her transsexuality and should treat her as theywould any female applicant. last_img read more
