Unibet expecting chess final bonanza

first_img5th November 2018 | By contenteditor Marketing & affiliates Unibet is expecting to take more money on this month’s FIDE World Chess Championship showdown than some of the summer’s Fifa World Cup games.The operator described chess as “one of the fastest growing sports in the betting arena” ahead of the match in London between defending champion Magnus Carlsen, of Norway, and American challenger Fabiano Caruana. Unibet has seen a 17-fold increase in chess betting turnover since 2013, with World Chess claiming the sport has 600 million fans worldwide.Unibet said the World Chess Championship, which takes place in London between November 9-28, will generate a turnover higher than some Russia 2018 matches and be comparable to the takings for the Uefa Champions League final.The company became the World Championship’s first-ever official betting partner when it signed an agreement with World Chess that included exclusive betting rights in August.Richard Öström, country manager for Unibet Norway, said: “The interest in chess is continuing to grow and as the leading online bookmaker in Europe, we want to be a part of and contribute to big sporting events.“The odds in this highly competitive match will continue to fluctuate and this year’s World Championship showdown between Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana in London will continue to establish chess as a permanent fixture in betting.”In August it was announced that World Chess and Unibet will produce additional digital content for this year’s World Championship match. As part of the partnership, Unibet will receive a full suite of exclusive rights, including digital advertising, the use of exclusive photo and video content and the opportunity to take part in a round of the First Move Ceremony.Unibet’s chess markets range from outright to in-play selections such as next move.Ilya Merenzon, the CEO of World Chess, said: “It’s great to see the betting community from across the globe come together, proving that the sport is continually becoming even more popular.“The tournament is the highlight of the chess calendar and millions of fans around the world will follow every move.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Operator hopes London showdown could bring in similar turnover to Champions League final Email Addresscenter_img Topics: Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Unibet expecting chess final bonanza Regions: Europe Nordics Norway Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

5 Car Trends to Look for

first_img Please enter your comment!  Likely anyone paying attention to the world of technology or the world of cars knows that big advancements are coming to both fields as they are so ingrained with each other. Here are 5 of the most significant car trends coming in the near future.AutonomousThe most familiar most talked about car trend on the horizon is autonomous cars. While fully autonomous vehicles for the public are about 5 -10 years down the road, many manufacturers have vehicles that have autonomous features like self-parking, lane assists, and other smaller pieces. Almost every new vehicle coming onto the market has a full system of cameras that surround the vehicle, adaptive cruise control, and sensors galore that check for possible collisions.Built-in Data and WifiOne of the big standard technologies already out is having Wifi built into the vehicles. Several manufacturers from Ford, Chevy, Hyundai, and many others already have this, but several are also working to connect a lot of the things you might do with your cell phone or laptop into the vehicle especially as more autonomous vehicles come out to the market. Furthermore, even the U.S. Department of Transportation has proposed rules that will require all new cars be able to talk to each other beginning in 2020 in an effort to reduce traffic accidents and fatalities.In the meantime, companies like Ford are bringing the Amazon Echo and its assistant Alexa into some of its cars so that you can command your car to do certain things for you in the near future. The only question really being debated about any of the integrations of your car with these technologies is what to do with the data that is generated.Bringing Back the OldReinventions of the old have also become a thing. Many manufacturers are bringing back old lines of vehicles with new conceptualizations while other companies continue to put out models in their mainstay model lines. Ford is bringing back its Ford Ranger and Ford Bronco; VW is bringing back its 70s micro-bus as a self-driving, electric concept (seen above); and Ford continues to add to its F-150 line while Toyota adds to its Camry line. Old is coming back and, in some cases, here to stay.Photo: Consumer ReportsGarnering to MillennialsWhile all this is happening, car companies are also trying to find ways to entice Millennials with special features built into new vehicles. According to JD Power, millennials make up 28 percent of the new car market. So many manufacturers are coming up with concept vehicles that they hope will make us jump on them. Fiat Chrysler introduced its Portal with features like plug, play, and share anything from music, video, pictures, and other content as well as face and voice recognition to identify passengers and remember preferences. Toyota released its concept FT-4X which has features for an urban camping experience from door handle water bottles to some really awesome features like built-in sleeping bags and a changeable interior for whatever you might need to move or fit into your vehicle.Photo: CarScoopsBigger VehiclesMillennials aren’t the only ones wanting bigger vehicles and the manufacturers have been responding by building more crossovers and more SUVs in general. While Nissan continues to put out its Rogue and Ford shows off its EcoSport, GMC revealed a smaller Terrain and Mazda showed its new CX-5. Other manufacturers continue to bring more of them to the market as well. The crossovers increasingly have better gas mileage and are more versatile than the smaller cars making them convenient for younger families, those that make deliveries, or even people who need a taller vehicle for ease of getting in and out of them. At the same time, they are also putting out bigger vans and SUVs including VW’s forthcoming Atlas and Subaru’s Viziv-7 concept.In general, for the future of cars, you can expect some bigger, better, self-driving, functional vehicles that almost everyone will want.

Boldly designed, innovative and elegant: An avant-garde building sculpture in the heart of Berlin between bourgeois generosity and modern transparency.

Save this picture!© Tobias Hein There is an underground parking garage as well as a courtyard with stone bands and fields with height beds. The façade of Tor 149 features a bright matt metal-coloured hue. A special effect appears when you walk by the building. For a moment it seems as if the building is rotating and then turns away. This effect is achieved by faceted façade elements which capture the light in different ways.

Patterson emphasizes getting through Iowa State game before bye week

first_imgFacebook Twitter Record-setting duo heads to Atlanta as national award finalists Linkedin Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award printThroughout the fall, TCU football head coach Gary Patterson has spoken about the stretch of four games – three of which are away – that ends this Saturday with Iowa State in Ames, Iowa.After winning by three and seven points at Texas Tech in Lubbock and Kansas State in Manhattan, Kansas, these close games are proving the challenge of playing on the road in the Big 12 Conference.“We can finally maybe catch our breath when we get done with the ballgame [against Iowa State], but we don’t think it will be probably any different than any of the other road games we’ve played up to this point,” Patterson said Tuesday.The wins in Lubbock and Manhattan mean nothing in Ames, Patterson said.“For right now, it’s just week seven,” he said. “It’s the Cyclones of Iowa State. You’ve got to watch fakes. You’ve got to prepare for everything in this ballgame. Everything goes. It’s going down.”The added factor of another night game poses a challenge for TCU. Patterson said there is more emotion at later games, making playing away that much more difficult.“I’d like to know the record of all the head coaches in the league at Manhattan, Kansas,” Patterson said. “I think there’s some that have only won a couple times.”Current Big 12 coaches, including Patterson, are a combined 8-10 with their current schools when playing in Manhattan.“It’s just a tough place to play,” Patterson said. “Ames is the same thing, and Lubbock, for us. TCU hadn’t won in how many years up there.”TCU hadn’t beaten Texas Tech in Lubbock since 1991. It had lost the last four games away at Texas Tech, in 1993, 1995, 2004 and 2013.The running headline of the season for TCU football has been the number of injuries on defense and the 14 true freshmen and 15 redshirt freshmen who have filled in the holes.Still, Patterson said he prefers the situation this year to two years ago, when the team had a dominant defense but lacked offensive power and leadership.“Every day is ‘50 First Dates,’” Patterson said, referencing the romantic comedy. “You’ve got to give our kids credit.”The coach said the defense must start faster. He said that if the team had played the entire game like it played the second half against Kansas State, it would have had a lot more success.Patterson noted that while the Wildcats beat TCU on special teams and on their own offense for the majority of the game, the Frogs’ ability to fight back gives players more confidence.“There’s a lot of compliments right now, but I don’t really have time for compliments,” he said.He did have one for two of his seniors, though.He said both Trevone Boykin and Josh Doctson should be considered for the most prestigious award in college football, the Heisman Trophy: “I’d have to say there’s not many people playing much better, if there is anybody.” Sarah Breuner + posts Facebook TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks George W.

At least nine journalists arrested in new round-up by security services

first_img Prisoner of Conscience Since 2001 – Why has Sweden not managed to bring Dawit Isaak home? November 22, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 At least nine journalists arrested in new round-up by security services January 13, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Eritrea The Eritrean authorities have arrested at least nine journalists in daily raids on the public media since 12 November. “On the basis of the information we recently obtained about the detention centre at Eiraeiro, we have every reason to fear for the physical safety and even for the lives of the journalists who have been detained,” Reporters Without Borders said. RSF_en Organisation Swedish prosecutors again refuse to investigate Dawit Isaak case Reporters Without Borders is appalled by a new round-up of journalists by the Eritrean government, in which at least nine state-owned media employees have been arrested since 12 November and are being held at undisclosed locations in conditions that are probably extremely harsh.“Terror reigns again among journalists in Eritrea,” the press freedom organisation said. “The government controls its people by means of lies, fear and violence, and does not tolerate anyone fleeing the country. We hope this wave of arrests will not be greeted with international indifference like the last time. The international community must intercede as a matter of urgency.”Reporters Without Borders added: “On the basis of the information we recently obtained about the detention centre at Eiraeiro, we have every reason to fear for the physical safety and even for the lives of the journalists who have been detained.”Reporters Without Borders has learned from sources in Asmara that members of the security forces have been going to the information ministry every day since 12 November and, without giving any explanation, have been questioning employees of the public media, which are housed at the information ministry.These are the public media journalists who have so far been arrested (the list is not exhaustive): Ahmed Baja of Eri-TV, Senait Tesfay of Eri-TV’s Tigrinya-language service, Paulos Kidane of Eri-TV’s Amharic-language service and Radio Dimtsi Hafash (Voice of the Broad Masses), Daniel Mussie of Radio Dimtsi Hafash’s Oromo-language service, Temesghen Abay of Radio Dimtsi Hafash’s Tigrinya-language service, Yemane Haile of the Eritrean News Agency (ENA), Fethia (surname unknown) of Eri-TV’s Arabic-language service, Simon (surname unknown) of Eri-TV and an unidentified journalist working for Eri-TV’s Arabic-language service.A local source said those arrested were taken to a detention centre called “Agip”. An Eritrean journalist living in exile told Reporters Without Borders this round-up was probably ordered with the aim of “terrorising those journalists who have not yet fled the country.”The source said: “the government is on a state of maximum alert following the recent defection of a number of veteran journalists holding key posts within the information ministry.” The detained journalists are accused of being the friends of, or being in contact with, the journalists who are now abroad, the source added. Reporters Without Borders is aware of at least six cases since the start of October of Eritrean journalists defecting after fleeing the country or requesting asylum abroad.The news of this round-up comes on the eve of the “Day of Support for Imprisoned Journalists,” which Reporters Without Borders has been organising on 23 November every year for the past 17 years. A total of 139 journalists are currently imprisoned worldwide. Eritrea, with at least 22 detained journalists, is Africa’s biggest prison for the press and the third biggest in the world, after China (with 32) and Cuba (with 23).

Traveling ionospheric disturbances in the Weddell Sea Anomaly associated with geomagnetic activity

first_imgWe present observations from the Falkland Islands Super Dual Auroral Radar Network radar of the propagation of HF radio waves via the Weddell Sea Ionospheric Anomaly (WSA), a region of enhanced austral summer nighttime ionospheric electron densities covering the southern Pacific and South Americas region. This anomaly is thought to be produced by uplift of the ionosphere by prevailing equatorward thermospheric winds. Of particular interest are perturbations of the WSA-supported propagation, which suggest that during periods of geomagnetic disturbance, the ionospheric layer can be lowered by several tens of kilometers and subsequently recover over a period of 1 to 2 h. Perturbations can appear singly or as a train of two to three events. We discuss possible causes of the perturbations and conclude that they are associated with equatorward propagating large-scale atmospheric waves produced by magnetospheric energy deposition in the auroral or subauroral ionosphere. Changes in high/middle latitude electrodynamics during geomagnetic storms may also account for the perturbations, but further modeling is required to fully understand their cause.last_img read more
