Court bouncer for IPL sponsors and brands

first_imgIPL trophy COMMENTS 2/2 SHARE SHARE EMAIL Drought: High Court suggests shifting IPL out of Maharashtra IPL 2016 Maharashtra IPL trophy courts and legal null BL14_01_IPL Drought impactApex court says ‘No’ to IPL matches in Maharashtra 1/2 Kings XI Punjab choose Dharamsala as second home venue SHARE Shift IPL matches out of Maharashtra due to drought: BJPcenter_img BL14_01_IPL BL14_01_IPL RELATED With 13 of the 19 Indian Premier League (IPL) matches moved out of Maharashtra, brands that have invested in the league are likely to press the panic button.The Bombay High Court on Wednesday ordered that the IPL matches be moved out of Maharashtra. The Court took the view following a PIL by NGO Loksatta Movement challenging use of large quantities of water in stadiums at a time when the state was reeling under severe drought conditions.According to industry watchers, IPL tournaments, which have high traction in terms of sponsorships and ticketing, are likely to see a dip in profits and viewership.Finances affectedAccording to BCCI data, IPL 2015 contributed as much as $182 million to the economy. The BCCI had argued it would not be feasible to shift the matches out of Maharashtra, and added that the Mumbai and Pune franchises are willing to contribute ₹5 crore each towards the Chief Minister’s Drought Relief Fund.Pune team’s counsel had told the court that “shifting matches at this stage will not only affect finances, but if the home team’s game is shifted to another State, it will lose support.” Lifestyle and denim brand Spykar Lifestyle, which has a ₹20-crore sponsorship deal with Pune’s IPL team Rising Pune Supergiants, says that plans of sponsors could go haywire.“The match has been shifted out of Maharashtra for a better cause. However, it will still disturb our plans,” said Sanjay Vakharia, COO, Spykar Lifestyles. “As sponsors, we will have to relook at our strategy as we had already initiated a lot of fan-activation in the home grounds. Revenues may be impacted and we are evaluating the situation.”Hitesh Gossain, Founder and CEO of Onspon.com, says that the brands always bet heavily on metros and their fan following. “On both those parameters, Mumbai scores high, which reflects in the audience turnout and fan engagement. Mumbai Indians is one of the most followed teams and correspondingly has among the highest sponsorship valuations.”Ticketing hitGossain said shifting the IPL out of Mumbai will definitely have an impact on ticketing (value and volume). As a venue, Mumbai has big turnouts with a high ticket-value per seat (and boxes) compared with other venues. He, however, added that sponsorship revenues have already been agreed and frozen prior to the IPL initiation for most of the slots, hence these may not be affected.Usha International, the official partner for Mumbai Indians, says the move may not impact it.

The author’s analysis is factually incorrect. Combined with his failure to acknowledge a significant conflict of interest, his article should be considered with skepticism.The author fails to mention that he and his company are on the payroll of a large automotive company currently involved in an unintended acceleration class action case that also involves the expert discussed in his paper. Since the author saw fit to withhold mention of this extremely relevant conflict of interest, one must question the author’s true motives in publishing a series of pieces aimed at criticizing the expert’s testimony.The author criticizes Toyota UA case expert testimony, saying it is according to a double standard. He bases this on characterizing the Ballista project as having been written by “the expert and his team.” However, the code in question was developed by a student project group under the supervision of another faculty member in a different department. In other words, the testifying expert didn’t write the code, and didn’t supervise the quality of the code. That project succeeded as a DARPA-funded proof of concept exercise, which was the goal. As readers should expect, non-critical research code written by students still learning basic software engineering practices should not be assumed to strictly follow life-critical software product practices.There are other technical issues and flaws with the author’s analysis, such as inventing a novel “scale up” global variable metric with no literature support for such an approach. However, details aren’t worth discussing, because the premise of his analysis is fundamentally incorrect.The author additionally criticizes the expert for not having seen Toyota’s code. That was not for lack of trying. Rather, Toyota spent significant effort preventing access to their code. The expert testimony was, however, based on first-hand knowledge of hundreds of pages of detailed reports from both NASA and other expert analysis of the code. The opinions were based on the totality of that information as well as numerous technical design documents. The full reasoning behind the opinions and use of terminology that the author criticizes is subject to a protective order, and trial transcripts are by necessity summaries of opinions. However, Toyota had full opportunity to challenge and rebut the technical analysis during the case, and was unsuccessful in doing so. The author also does not really discuss the crux of the expert testimony, which had to do with whether Toyota followed accepted practices in creating safety critical software, and the existence of a hardware single point of failure.If readers want to truly understand the who, what, and why of creating safety critical and mission critical software, including a module with a much more complete story of what really happened in the Toyota UA cases, they are invited to look at freely available course lectures on the topic at:       https://users.ece.cmu.edu/~koopman/lectures/index.htmlProf. Philip Koopman Carnegie Mellon University     Prof. Koopman has testified in both the Toyota UA trial and a currently ongoing unintended acceleration class action lawsuit.

Ban urges coordinated global response to food poverty climate crises

30 April 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called for a “closely coordinated” response to the interconnected crises of food insecurity, extreme poverty and climate change that are being “exacerbated by global financial and economic turmoil of unprecedented proportions.” In a message to the Ministerial Meeting of the Movement of Non-Aligned Nations (NAM), held in Havana, Mr. Ban called the group to “play a strong, constructive role in forging consensus among developing countries and to continue to deepen global cooperation in the difficult times ahead.”Although poorer countries have had no part in creating the crisis, they are likely to feel some of the worst of the consequences, he said in the message, which was delivered on his behalf by Haile Menkerios, Assistant-Secretary-General for Political Affairs.Developing countries are likely to suffer from declining growth, credit, development assistance, remittances and trade, warned the Secretary-General. “Indeed, the crisis raises the risk of social unrest and political instability.”He noted that weakened governments are unlikely to be able to deliver on their responsibilities and to meet popular expectations, and underscored the importance of lending strong support, in particular, to countries emerging from conflict.“We must make the most of upcoming opportunities to strengthen collective action, including the Conference on the World Financial and Economic Crisis and Its Impact on Development to be held at the United Nations in early June.”Turning to climate change, Mr. Ban pushed for a move towards a “green economy” which can stimulate growth and create jobs while addressing global warming at the same time. “I urge the NAM to contribute to this effort, including the sealing of a deal at climate change talks later this year in Copenhagen.”In the wide-ranging speech, he also urged leaders to continue demonstrating their commitment to peace and security efforts by helping deploy a full-strength peacekeeping force in Darfur, promoting peace in the Middle East, and supporting the economy in Haiti. read more

US stocks edge mostly higher as technology companies lag

Stocks are mostly higher in early trading on Wall Street Wednesday as gains in health care and other sectors outweighed losses in technology companies.Investors continued to shift money into U.S. government bonds, driving long-term bond yields further below short-term ones. The so-called inversion of the U.S. yield curve is a rare phenomenon that has correctly predicted previous recessions.Uncertainty over whether the trade war between the U.S. and China will drag the economy into a recession has roiled markets and sent investors seeking shelter in bonds, gold and other traditional safe-haven assets.The S&P 500 was up less than 0.1% as of 10:20 a.m. Eastern Time. The benchmark index has fallen for the past four weeks in a row. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 22 points, or 0.1%, to 25,798. The Nasdaq, which is heavily weighted with technology stocks, slid 0.3%.European markets were broadly lower after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson moved to suspend Parliament, which would hamper lawmakers’ efforts to stop a no-deal departure from the European Union in October.The yield in the 10-year Treasury fell below that of the two-year Treasury on Tuesday and remained lower in early trading Wednesday. The 10-year yield slid to 1.46%, down from 1.49% late Tuesday. The two-year was at 1.50%, down from 1.52% a day earlier.When the yield curve inverted earlier this month for the first time since 2007, it led to a broad market sell-off.The major U.S. indexes are on track for losses of 3% or more in August in what has been a volatile month for the market.Last week, the trade conflict escalated again with Washington and Beijing threatening new tariffs on each other’s goods, triggering a sharp sell-off in global markets. On Monday the market recouped some of those losses after President Donald Trump said his negotiators had received encouraging calls from China over the weekend. Traders drew encouragement from the development, even though China’s foreign ministry denied knowledge of any such calls.U.S. and Chinese trade negotiators are due to meet next month in Washington, but neither side has given any indication of offering concessions to break a deadlock. A round of talks last month in Shanghai ended with no sign of progress.With little to no news after President Trump’s conflicting comments this week on the status of negotiations, investors are “finding it difficult to put a finger as to where the ongoing U.S.-China trade issue is headed,” Jingyi Pan of IG said in a report. “The saying that we are a tweet (from Trump) away from the next trade escalation between U.S. and China had certainly grown to become the broad view.”Investors were also weighing a mixed batch of corporate earnings reports and outlooks Wednesday.Autodesk plunged 12.4% after the software company slashed its full-year forecasts, while Movado Group sank 20.5% after the company’s earnings and revenue fell short of Wall Street’s forecasts.Dycom Industries rose 5% after its second quarter results came in ahead of analysts’ expectations.___AP Business Writers Joe McDonald and Matt Ott contributed.Alex Veiga, The Associated Press read more

TOP 25 THIS WEEK Furman plays for 1st time with ranking

RALEIGH, N.C. — Furman coach Bob Richey wants his players to savour the program’s first appearance in the AP Top 25 poll, yet also remember how much work it took to get there.He’s hoping that approach will keep the 25th-ranked Paladins building toward something bigger, starting with Tuesday night’s trip to Elon and a weekend visit to USC Upstate.“The reality of it is this was not just something that was created by this team,” Richey told The Associated Press. “There’s a lot of people that are involved in this and have paved the way for this to happen.”The Paladins (8-0, 1-0 Southern Conference) had a marquee upset in November by beating reigning national champion Villanova in overtime on the road to grab some national attention. They also won at Loyola-Chicago , last year’s surprise Final Four team.And there was Jordan Lyons’ 54-point showing , with 15 3-pointers to tie an NCAA record, against North Greenville on Nov. 15.Then came Monday, when Furman grabbed the final spot in this week’s poll and entered the week as one of 11 unbeaten teams left in Division I. Located in Greenville, South Carolina, Furman has tied a program record with 23 wins in each of the past two seasons and has won 15 of 16 dating to last season.Richey, in his second season as head coach after six seasons on the Furman coaching staff, said the team addressed the ranking in a Monday meeting. That included first-year recruiting director Daniel Fowler, a four-year starter for the Paladins who recalled that his freshman team hoped just to reach 10 wins.Now a team picked to finish fourth in the Southern Conference is chasing much more, such as its first Southern Conference Tournament title and NCAA Tournament berth since 1980.“The responsibility is we focus on the task at hand, we focus on improvement, we focus on getting better,” Richey said. “We focus on being the best version of ourselves that we can. And we keep it about that.“The second you get away from that and start falling in love with all the things that come with this exposure, then I think that’s when you’re going to quickly find yourself on your back.”MARQUEE MATCHUPThere’s a marquee matchup to headline the week ahead for AP Top 25 teams when top-ranked and unbeaten Gonzaga meets No. 7 Tennessee on Sunday in Phoenix.The Zags (8-0) already have one of the season’s most impressive wins against then-No. 1 Duke . As for the Volunteers (6-1), it’s their second big nonconference game in the season’s opening month; they lost in overtime to No. 2 Kansas in the NIT Season Tipoff over Thanksgiving week.RANKED VS. RANKEDThere’s another matchup of ranked teams out west Friday night. This one features No. 6 Nevada meeting No. 20 Arizona State in Los Angeles with both teams trying to stay unbeaten.STATUS QUOThere was no change at the top of Monday’s latest poll, with Gonzaga, Kansas, No. 3 Duke and No. 4 Virginia at the top again. The Zags had 43 of 64 first-place votes, the Jayhawks had 19, the Blue Devils had one and the Cavaliers had one.MICHIGAN’S CLIMBMichigan has gone from No. 19 in the preseason to No. 5 with a series of impressive wins .The Wolverines (8-0, 1-0 Big Ten) have won every game by at least 17 points, including against Villanova, North Carolina and Purdue. That has them off to their best start since winning the first 16 games of the 2012-13 season, with a league game at Northwestern on Tuesday and a home game against South Carolina on Saturday.CONFERENCE WATCHThe Big Ten has a national-best seven ranked teams, led by the Wolverines, No. 10 Michigan State and No. 12 Wisconsin. The list includes No. 24 Nebraska, which entered Monday’s poll for the first time since November 2014, and visits Minnesota on Wednesday.The Atlantic Coast Conference is second with five teams — Duke, Virginia, No. 11 Florida State, No. 14 UNC and No. 15 Virginia Tech — while the Southeastern Conference has four in Tennessee, No. 8 Auburn, No. 9 Kentucky and No. 22 Mississippi State.WATCH LISTPurdue (5-3) fell out of the poll from No. 19 after losses to ranked FSU and Michigan teams, but finished one point behind Furman for the final spot and could make it a brief absence by beating No. 23 Maryland on Thursday and Texas on Sunday.Iowa State (6-1) was also among the top vote-getters just outside the Top 25 and has a game at No. 18 Iowa on Thursday.___More AP college basketball: https://apnews.com/Collegebasketball and http://www.twitter.com/AP_Top25___Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardapAaron Beard, The Associated Press read more

Xenophon and Greens vie for sixth spot

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A battle between Independent Nick Xenophon and the Greens has erupted in South Australia for first preference votes which could shape the power of the next government. The Senate race for the sixth spot is one of the most influential in the South Australian election campaign. At 25, Greens candidate Sarah Hanson-Young made history as the youngest Senator ever elected but now faces an early retirement. “Tony Abbott wants this seat so that he can get effective control of the Parliament,” she says. “And he’s doing everything he can to do it. So I’ve got a fight on my hands.” Her prospects aren’t helped by the presence of Nick Xenophon. He may not have the backing of a party machine, but the ‘No Pokies’ campaigner has built a large public profile in his experience in the Senate and the Legislative Council of the South Australian Parliament. “I’m having to do this as a grassroots campaign, going to community centres, appealing for volunteers,” he says. “Because my biggest challenge is to have enough people at polling booths to hand out how-to-vote cards for me.” Watching Senator Xenophon campaign, recognition seems to be the last of his worries. He won 14.78 per cent of first preference votes at the 2007 election, securing a quota in his own right. Several of his opponents expect that vote to grow towards 20 per cent, a figure he secured when re-elected to the state parliament in 2006. Source: ABClast_img read more

Endangered Kiwi Egg Saved With Masking Tape

first_imgStay on target New Zealand’s Giant Hand Sculpture Is the Stuff of NightmaresHuman-Sized Penguin Fossils Uncovered in New Zealand The New Zealand Department of Conservation was faced with an interesting challenge recently when an egg was brought in with a rather large hole. Usually, this would spell doom for the chick developing inside, but Rainbow Springs Kiwi Husbandry Manager Claire Travers rigged up an ingenious repair using some tape and another egg.You may be wondering there’s even such a thing as a Kiwi Husbandry Manager, but that’s probably because you don’t live in New Zealand. All five species of the flightless birds are native to the country, and all five are endangered to some degree. Researchers estimate there are only 68,000 of the birds left in the wild, and the population is declining by 1,000 every year. So, repairing a damaged egg is a worthy undertaking for conservationists.When the egg was brought in, the hole was deemed too large to patch with conventional measures. The shell had broken and impinged upon the membrane underneath, which is very dangerous for the chick. The shell plays a vital role in maintaining humidity inside the egg, as well as exchanging oxygen and carbon dioxide. In desperation, Travers used a piece of an old egg to cover the damaged portion and held it in place with masking tape.Fissure hatching.To the surprise of everyone at Rainbow Springs, the egg hatched 11 days after the repair was made and a new Kiwi was born.

Stroke Month Survivor Story

first_imgWhen life gives you a second chance, you embrace it to live life to the fullest. For McLean resident, retired business owner, and EmPowered to Serve ambassador for the American Heart Association, Mark Moore, that was exactly the case when he survived two strokes at the age of 46.Stroke survivor and dedicated full time philanthropist Mark Moore. (Photo courtesy of The Washington Post.)In 2007, Mark Moore was a successful businessman who co-owned Segovia Inc., a business (Mark and his friend) founded in 2002, that sold global IP services to the Department of Defense. Married to his longtime love Brenda and a father of two, Mark felt good about life. He ate healthy, exercised regularly, didn’t smoke or drink, and had good blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Learning that he developed a blood clotting deficiency, which led him to have two strokes that same year, completely shocked Mark and his family.It was the day before Mother’s Day in 2007 and Mark was coaching his son’s baseball team when he noticed something was wrong. While driving home with his son, Mark made an excuse to stop and get a Mother’s Day card; the pain he felt was worsening. That’s when he called his wife, who advised him to call an ambulance immediately. At the hospital, it was confirmed that Mark had a stroke. Two days later, Mark had a second stroke. To alleviate the pressure on his brain, doctors had to remove a small piece of Mark’s skull and put him into an induced coma for six weeks to reduce the swelling and rest his brain. Brenda was by his side every night and when Mark came out of his coma, she told him what had happened. “She said, ‘You’ve had two strokes and you’ve got a long recovery ahead’,” Mark told the American Heart Association’s Stroke Connection. “It was an absolute shock, and my initial reaction was ‘I don’t want to work that hard.”But Mark’s faith pushed him through. “I said to myself, ‘God must think I can handle this, and I’ll handle it.’ That was the moment I began to surrender and things changed for me,” Mark recalled. With faith as his center and a new outlook on life, two months of intensive physical therapy four days a week, and the support of his wife who went to every appointment with him, progress was slowly showing for Mark. Continuous support from his family and friends gave him the boost he needed.Determined and driven, Mark set a goal to run a 5k exactly one year after his stroke. By the end of the summer Mark returned to Segovia Inc. as chief operating officer and a year after his stroke completed a 5K in 36 minutes. At 49, Mark retired after he and his business partner sold their company. Since then Mark and his wife have dedicated their life to serving others with a focus in health care, education, culture, and Christian evangelism; They’ve started the Mark and Brenda Moore Family Foundation. “I realize I didn’t recover on my own,” Mark told Stroke Connection. “I believe we have an obligation to pay it forward.”The Moore’s philanthropic projects are numerous; and Mark has recently penned a memoire entitled, “A Stroke of Faith.”Mark and Brenda Moore are also part of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s EmPowered To Serve program, which brings together faith-based organizations to provide health education and resources to multicultural communities through discussion and group activities.The best advice Mark can offer from his experience is to develop a support system that is dependable and helps you recover emotionally and mentally. “Don’t try to go at it alone. Family and friends have been instrumental in my recovery and return to normal life,” Mark said.last_img read more

The Top 4 Reasons SEO Is Dead

first_img Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global April 28, 2015 5 min read For years Google has dominated the internet and more or less held a monopoly on consumer searches. Nobody ever says, “Yahoo those song lyrics.” However, with rapid changes in social media and new trends in consumer behavior online, the giant now faces some uncharted challenges.Related: 5 Social Media Marketing Metrics You Should Be TrackingHow does this affect you? Well, if your business up to this point has relied Google searches to generate revenue, the following emerging trends are something you should keep an eye on to make sure your business doesn’t take an unexpected hit.1. Organic reach is down.Although Google is still the dominating force in search-engine traffic, consumers’ intelligence level and frame of mind have changed big time in just the past few years. First, organic reach is down. Organic reach is the number of people shown your post through unpaid distribution — and it’s down because users are searching elsewhere (see the next point).Consumers are aware of the difference between sponsored listings and organic listings more so than ever before. This has arguably created cynicism in many users, who avoid clicking on paid ads altogether even though they’re often the best source of the information they seek. Since competition has gone up for many keywords, driving up the prices on ads and causing a frenzy of mixed information in organic-search results, users have begun trending toward internet searches, where they can confirm and mirror their peer groups’ opinions and decisions.2. People want what their friends have.The days are fading of people typing their searches into Google and trusting anything it spits back at them. This has people searching in new ways. Facebook’s move to step up its search options poses the largest threat to Google’s market share. When users search for something like a new restaurant or movie, they want to see the opinions and behaviors of people they actually know and respect. Google was too slow to adapt this trend and so it now has to either catch up or get left behind. Consumers are more likely to care what their friends’ favorite restaurant is than what restaurant is on the first page that comes up on a local Google search.Related: Will Google’s Algorithm Update Affect Your Franchise Sales?3. Mobile apps and niche social networks are taking market share.We Millenials are the generation of Googling, Tindering and Uber-ing. We love to do everything on our phones, from looking up song lyrics to finding dates, to hailing a ride home after a wild night. Consumer traffic online is splitting into niches faster than reality-star couples are splitting up. With more competition online, app developers have seen great success in appealing to specific niches exclusively.How does this affect SEO? The reason that this trend toward splitting-up is one of the biggest killers of traditional search engine strategies is that it gives tech-savvy users a much more targeted search option. Instead of searching all of Google for the best restaurants in Manhattan and being flooded with difficult-to-decipher results, users can search Yelp, an application completely dedicated to detailed lists of the best establishments, with review peer ratings, and make a more educated, simpler decision.Likewise, a consumer who in the past may have searched for the latest fashion trends on Google is now more likely to search Pinterest. Therefore, as a marketer or business owner, it is more important to know where your customer is looking for your product, than to rely solely on your product appearing at the top of Google. 4. Facebook has. . . faces.You may not agree, but many people just don’t trust Google the way they used to. Facebook has the advantage of faces. Google lacks the incorporation of social proof. Although Google tried to to catch up by rolling out its Google Plus social network, and although it was forced on us like the Kardashians, the feature never could deliver benefits to users enough to justify using a second social network.Social proof is one of the biggest driving factors in consumers’ decisions today and there is just no way to force or fake that. Until Google figures out a different way to out-appeal Facebook and give people a platform to socialize, to share where they eat, to party and kick back, Google may end up being a tool just for boring factual research, like those old-school hardcover encyclopedias consigned to the back shelf.Search engines, specifically Google, will likely always be the place we go to get the information we need. However, the point is that now that customers have so many other options of where to search, it is important that businesses which traditionally relied fully on SEO to pick up customers be aware of where their customers are trending to — or get left behind.Related: 5 Signs That It’s Time to Outsource Your Marketing Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

Tom Reaves Receives Lifetime Achievement Award at NoteExpo Convention

first_img Lifetime Achievement Award National Asset Advisors NoteExpo Convention NoteSchool 2016-01-14 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Headlines, News Tom Reaves Receives Lifetime Achievement Award at NoteExpo Convention Co-founder of National Asset Advisors Tom Reaves, who has partnered with NoteSchool for over 10 years, was given a lifetime achievement award at the NoteExpo Convention “for his “high moral business standards, visionary leadership, entrepreneurial spirit, and his lifetime commitment to the Note Industry.”NoteSchool founder Eddie Speed presented the award at the ceremony after mentioning that Reaves and co-founder David Campbell “have always been dedicated to maintaining a moral compass within the company—in both good and bad economic times.”“Our industry has gone through massive changes over the last few years,” said Reaves. “In order to survive we had to be nimble and change to meet the new challenges created by government regulations. We were able to accomplish this transition because of the diligence of our talented employees. By meeting these challenges head-on, we have become stronger and better able to service our customers while maintaining our goal of ‘doing the right thing every time.’”Speed added, “Nothing has shaken Tom’s consistent attitude of ‘doing the right thing by everyone.”National Asset Advisors, LLC and National Asset Mortgage, LLC, both Reaves’ affiliated companies, have worked with Speed and NoteExpo for a long time. Recently, the companies partnered to help members of the NoteSchool Mentorship program with loan origination, servicing notes, collections, and preservation.“Students in our mentorship program range from highly sophisticated investors to those who are new to the business,” Speed explained. “We realized that there was a gap in the process that NAA is so uniquely qualified to provide–anywhere from billing to specialty services. The company has established procedures, a proven track record, and incredible scalability–all services that offer a perfect fit for the investors in our mentorship program.”center_img January 14, 2016 573 Views Sharelast_img read more
