Understanding where esports betting is going in the US

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Esports We’ve already seen numerous firms sponsoring esports teams and tournaments to bolster their esports credentials. Keep in mind that key stakeholders in the esports industry will be watching closely, as any match-fixing scandals tied to betting could torpedo the industry, but initiatives to ensure integrity are helping (the Esports Integrity Commission will oversee the aforementioned sportsbook, for example). Topics: Esports esports betting Do you think esports betting will be more relevant in the US due to more state legislation or due to a greater number of people becoming fans of the esports? Is it the right time for betting operators to engage in US esports betting if they haven’t already? At the same time, the esports audience is absolutely growing. Interpret data shows that in 2020, the esports viewing audience in the US grew from 12% of the population at the start of the year to 19% by the end – meaning nearly one in five Americans now watches esports. As this audience grows, gambling increases are likely to follow. In Canada, Luckbox has hired a head of content to capitalise on the streaming opportunities in the space. Pinnacle is running its own CS:GO tournament, which is effectively more content creation. The pandemic has bled revenues from both the gambling and esports industries over the last year. Still, by banding together, they’re creating a synergistic relationship that should elevate both businesses over the long term. Betting operators should recognise that they have a genuine opportunity to expand their business beyond traditional sports. Esports fans are every bit as passionate as their regular sports counterparts and represent a highly appealing demographic for influential brands. This is why we’re now seeing betting firms getting into the content creation side of the business as well. Betway created its content creation team in Brazil.  Understanding where esports betting is going in the UScenter_img Tags: betting Esports USA James Brightman, senior strategist at Interpret, provides a perspective on the company’s latest esports research and his take on esports betting in the US. I think you partially answered your own question. Thus far, we’ve seen esports betting legalised in Nevada, Colorado, New Jersey, Tennessee, Washington, Virginia and West Virginia. As more lawmakers in various states introduce legislation to allow for esports betting, we’re likely to see further betting services pop up to capitalise on this opportunity. It’s somewhat analogous to states where marijuana has been legalised – Colorado and states that permit those sales have seen a rise in cannabis-based businesses.  The short answer? Yes. The intersection of gambling and esports is still quite nascent. We only just saw the first-ever dedicated sportsbook for esports launch, initiated by Las Vegas gambling firm GameCo in partnership with US Bookmaking and Sky Ute Casino Resort. There’s still time for betting operators to get involved and plant their flag, so to speak. Getting into esports now will allow operators to benefit as the viewership numbers continue to rise, leading to more awareness for betting companies.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter What should betting operators take away from your company’s findings?

The stock market has crashed! Here’s how I’d invest £20k in a Stocks and Shares ISA today

I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Enter Your Email Address Investing £20k, or any other amount, in a Stocks and Shares ISA today may not seem to be a sound move. After all, the FTSE 100 has experienced one of its fastest and most severe market crashes of all time.In the short run, things could get worse before they improve. The spread of coronavirus may cause a prolonged recession. The prospect means investor sentiment is likely to remain weak over the medium term.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…However, the valuations across the FTSE 100 and its track record of recovery suggest that now could be an opportune moment to buy high-quality stocks in an ISA.Long-term growthIt can be difficult in situations such as these to put the recent market crash into perspective. Certainly, there has been a sharp and significant decline in valuations across the FTSE 100. However, the index has experienced similar, and even greater, falls in the past.For example, less than four years after its inception, the FTSE 100 experienced the 1987 crash. This decimated the valuations of its members, but the index went on to recover. Similarly, its declines in the early 2000s and during the financial crisis were followed by recoveries which saw the index post new record highs.Indeed, the FTSE 100 has risen around five-fold since its inception in 1984 – even after its recent crash. This equates to an annualised return of 4.6% plus dividends. Compared to other asset classes, the FTSE 100’s long-term performance has been exceptionally strong, despite the crises it has faced.Therefore, while assets such as cash and bonds may seem appealing right now, buying FTSE 100 stocks could be a much better idea for long-term ISA investors.Buying opportunitiesSince the index’s fall has been widespread, affecting the vast majority of its sectors, it is fairly straightforward to find cheap stocks at present. More difficult is unearthing those companies that offer good value for money based on their financial standing and recovery potential.It is unclear how long the lockdown will last, and how quickly the economy will recover. That being the case, investors may wish to purchase companies with strong balance sheets and solid cash flow. Such companies may be most likely to survive the current crisis, and to gain market share from weaker rivals. This could lead to them enjoying higher levels of profitability in the long run.Furthermore, purchasing mature companies that operate in industries with defensive characteristics could be a sound move. They may be less risky compared to cyclical businesses that are more reliant on the performance of the economy in an uncertain period.

The Primate of the united Church of Pakistan and Bishop of Peshawar, Humphrey Peters, said recent court action by the governor of Peshawar over Edwardes College last month had set aside previous rulings maintaining its independence and diocesan control.The bishop said: “Our provincial government going into the court against the High Court’s order of 2016 is a clear indication that it does not want to see the church control over the college. The government’s initiation of going into the Court against the decision in favor of the Pakistani Church is also a violation of Pakistan’s Constitution.”Read the full article here.

What Mindfulness Has Taught Me About Father’s Day

first_img Please enter your name here Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. By Martha BrettschneiderMy father died 39 years ago, just a few days after my thirteenth birthday. Since he chose to take his own life, Father’s Day triggered sadness and self-pity for many years.The more painful truth, though, is that when I learned he was gone, the deepest part of my young heart felt relief for him.My earliest memories of my handsome, brilliant father—whose hands were once on the cover of Life magazine performing one of the earliest liver transplants—were fraught with mixed emotions.He loved me deeply, and let me know it. Despite that, I could never crack the core of his bipolar disorder-induced despair, no matter how hard I tried.His suffering was palpable to me and seeped into my own tender skin. So even while I wailed in my mother’s arms upon hearing the news of his death, a small voice whispered, “At least he’s not suffering anymore.”Years of therapy helped me realize that I could never have made him happy, could never have saved his life. Eventually I stopped counting the days in the run-up to Father’s Day, stopped planning that I would be miserable, and got through the day in a relatively neutral frame of mind.How Mindfulness Has Nurtured a New Sense of Gratitude on Father’s DaySix years ago, while recovering from breast cancer, I stumbled into mindfulness practice quite by accident (if you believe in accidents, which, frankly, I don’t anymore).I discovered that I was spending most of my time focused on the future, with intermittent periods of being mired in the past. I was missing out on the beauty of life in the present moment, the only place where anything real happens, the only place I can take action.Most shocking of all was learning that I have a choice in which thoughts to buy into. I can allow thoughts that don’t serve me to float away. I can decide what memories to include in my highlight reel.Learning these truths on an intellectual level is one thing. Unleashing the full power of present moment awareness requires a whole lot of practice. In my own case, nurturing a daily meditation habit has been key to translating theory into results.My personal experience is in line with the mountain of neuroscience research results on the benefits of mindfulness meditation. Daily practice in the art of carving out a few minutes of stillness to observe my thought patterns has strengthened my capacity for:AcceptanceNon-judgmentCompassionEmpathyForgivenessSense of connectednessGratitudeMy Father’s Day Highlight ReelInstead of replaying the sad memories that trigger suffering, this Father’s Day my highlight reel will feature these memories:The times I stood on my father’s feet as a little girl while he danced us around the living room.The many mornings I watched him slather shaving cream over the stubble of his beard, pull his mouth to one side to stretch the cheek skin tight, and drag the razor through the white foam to clear smooth Zamboni tracks. Once both cheeks and his mustache were done, I held my breath while he shaved the thin casing of his throat.The smell of his Old Spice aftershave after he shook it from the ivory colored glass bottle with the strange metal stopper and slapped it onto his face. (Those were the days of only one Old Spice fragrance, not the dizzying array of choices my own sons have today.)The soft amber leather and black stitching of the baseball glove he bought and oiled for me before taking me to a park to play catch. The heft of the softball as I snatched it from the air.Riding the chairlift with him to the top of a black diamond ski run in Colorado when I was in kindergarten and coming across a mountain goat on the slow descent down. This is a mixed memory, since I was petrified of the difficulty of the run but didn’t want to disappoint him. Looking back, however, I see the confidence he had in me as a gift.And finally, getting behind the wheel of my father’s car on my thirteenth birthday when he announced it was time for me to learn to drive. My feet barely hit the pedals and I suggested this might not be a good idea, but he insisted. When he died eight days later, I understood.For most of my life I focused on the irresponsibility of that driving lesson. This Father’s Day, 39 years later, I’m reframing it as the final indication of his love for me. He knew he was checking out, but not before teaching his youngest child to drive.And those other memories linked to his depths of suffering, the ones I’m not choosing for my highlight reel? Those episodes made me stronger too. They taught me to live my life to the fullest, attend to my mental and physical health, and seek treatment for both when needed. They taught me to cherish the gift of life and loved ones, since you never know how long any of us will be here.Having a positive highlight reel doesn’t mean burying the hard parts. With practice, we can honor the role of tough times in our lives and let the negative emotions go. Each stepping stone along the way, including the sharpest, most painful ones, shape us in positive ways if we stay open to learning the lessons.It took therapy to get me to a point of neutrality on Father’s Day. It took mindfulness to get me to a point of gratitude.Martha Brettschneider is the author of Blooming Into Mindfulness: How the Universe Used a Garden, Cancer, and Carpools to Teach Me That Calm Is the New Happy Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Previous articleCity Council approves CRA Board MemberNext articleBob Poe Convenes HIV Roundtable Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR You have entered an incorrect email address!

What is the true cost of vehicle ownership?

first_img$7,687 Study done by AAA reveals the annual amountFrom AAAAmerican drivers’ annual driving cost to own and operate a motor vehicle will cost an average of $8,469, or $706 each month according to AAA’s 2017 Your Driving Cost study. The annual evaluation of driving costs reveals that small sedans are the least expensive vehicles to drive at $6,354 annually, however small SUVs ($7,606), hybrids ($7,687) and electric vehicles ($8,439) all offer lower-than-average driving costs to U.S. drivers. Conversely, of the nine categories included in the evaluation, pickup trucks are the most expensive vehicles to drive at $10,054 annually.“Keeping up with basic vehicle maintenance makes it possible to lower your driving cost,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Neglecting scheduled maintenance can damage your vehicle, leaving you with expensive car repairs.”AAA also factors in other expenses including fuel, depreciation, and repairs:FuelFuel costs vary significantly by vehicle type, ranging from 3.68 cents per mile (electric vehicles) to 13.88 cents per mile (pickup trucks). New vehicle owners, on average, will spend just over 10 cents per mile – about $1,500 annually — to fuel their vehicles.For gasoline-powered vehicles, AAA recommends selecting a TOP TIER gasoline, as its independent research found it to keep engines 19 times cleaner, improving vehicle performance and fuel economy. AAA cautions drivers that using premium-grade gasoline in a vehicle that does not specifically require it is an unnecessary expense.DepreciationDepreciation — the declining value of a vehicle over time — is the biggest, and most often overlooked, expense associated with purchasing a new car. New vehicles lose an average of $15,000 in value during the first five years of ownership. In 2017, small sedans ($2,114) and small SUVs ($2,840) have the lowest annual depreciation costs, while minivans ($3,839) and electric vehicles ($5,704) are at the high end of the scale.Maintenance and RepairTo calculate annual maintenance and repair costs, AAA examined factory-recommended maintenance, replacement tires, extended warranty costs and services associated with typical wear-and-tear. New vehicles, on average, will cost a driver $1,186 per year to maintain and repair.The inevitable costs associated with maintenance and repair should be an important consideration for car shoppers, as a recent AAA survey found that one-third of U.S. drivers could not afford an unexpected repair bill. AAA Approved Auto Repair facilities offer free vehicle inspections, AAA member discounts and a 24-month/24,000-mile warranty for AAA members. Visit AAA.com/AutoRepair to find a nearby facility.In addition to analyzing the ownership costs for sedans, SUVs and minivans, AAA’s Your Driving Costs study added four new vehicle segments in 2017 – small SUVs, pickup trucks, hybrids and electric vehicles. Annual Cost* Large Sedan Electric VehiclesNew to the Your Driving Costs study in 2017, AAA found that electric vehicles have lower-than-average driving costs at $8,439 per year. Without a gasoline engine to maintain, electric vehicles have the lowest annual maintenance and repair costs, at $982 per year. By relying on electricity instead of gasoline, fuel costs are also significantly lower than average, at under four cents per mile. Depreciation, however, is currently extremely high for these vehicles, losing an average of nearly $6,000 in value every year.A recent AAA survey revealed that 1-in-6 Americans are likely to choose an electric vehicle, the majority motivated by their lower long-term ownership costs.“Although electric vehicles can have higher up-front costs, lower fuel and maintenance costs make them a surprisingly affordable choice in the long run,” said Nielsen. “For even lower costs, car shoppers can avoid high depreciation costs by selecting a used electric vehicle.”With a focus on the future, the AAA Green Car Guide offers ratings of electric, hybrid, compressed natural gas‐powered (CNG), diesel and other high fuel economy vehicles. Visit AAA.com/greencar for more.AAA’s Your Driving Costs study employs a proprietary methodology to analyze the costs of owning and operating a new vehicle in the United States, using data from a variety of sources, including Vincentric LLC. Additional information and detailed driving costs, including insurance costs, finances charges, registration/license fees, taxes and finance charges can be found at NewsRoom.AAA.com or AAA.com/YourDrivingCosts.As North America’s largest motoring and leisure travel organization, AAA provides more than 57 million members with travel, insurance, financial and automotive-related services.

The project was built on a triangular plot of land, with a native forest running alongside the larger edge. So, to emphasize the view and to integrate home and nature, the project was developed in the shape of an L, allowing all spaces to open to the interior courtyard, swimming pool, and forest.Save this picture!© Edgard CesarSave this picture!© Edgard CesarThe house is set on the highest point of the lot, respecting the natural landscape, and only a small amount of earthwork was done to level the environments above the pool area.Save this picture!© Edgard CesarSave this picture!Floor Plan – Ground FloorSave this picture!© Edgard CesarThe architectural concept focuses on extending the horizontal lines, creating a visual extension of the building from all sides. The main facade combines concrete with vertical baffles for more privacy. An overhanging concrete box stretches out. This box also features an opening in the ceiling, bringing architecture and nature closer together. The L-shaped plan also offers optimal separation between the different areas, living rooms, laundry rooms, private areas, and entertainment spaces, all of which are connected to the garden with openings for ventilation and natural lighting.Save this picture!© Edgard CesarTo expand the landscape even further, a green roof was installed. This roof garden provides a pleasant spot for enjoying full-moon nights and late afternoons with an expanded overview of the surroundings.Save this picture!© Edgard CesarProject gallerySee allShow lessa+u: MAD Architects – DreamscapeArchitecture BooksHouse City Wall / nodo17 groupSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: ALDEIA ACABAMENTOS, CRJ Esquadrias, Gruta Mármores e Granitos Area:  673 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeLeo RomanoOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsGoianiaJardins MuniqueConcrete HousesConcrete InteriorsBrazilPublished on October 21, 2020Cite: “House da Mata / Leo Romano” [Casa da Mata / Leo Romano] 21 Oct 2020.
