Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Banach Technology plans to expand its product portfolio into US major league sports Regions: UK & Ireland Topics: Finance Sports betting Dublin-based start-up Banach Technology plans to expand its portfolio into the four traditional US major league sports by the end of 2018 after securing €2.2m (£1.9m/$2.6m) in a seed-funding round that included investments from Paddy Power co-founders David Power and Stewart Kenny.Banach’s technology, which allows punters to build a personalised bet consisting of correlated same-game principles, is currently specific to football.However, Banach chief executive Mark Hughes said the company will strengthen the in-house team of mathematicians and software engineers with several new hires to enable new product launches for American football, baseball, basketball and ice hockey, as well as tennis, in the coming months.“We have a football product at the moment and we want to build that out for other sports and also start growing into risk management,” Hughes, who spent six years at Paddy Power before leaving in 2014, told iGamingBusiness.com.According to The Times newspaper, Power and Kenny have invested €200,000 and €100,000, respectively. Other investors in the funding round included former Paddy Power chief executive Patrick Kennedy and the company’s ex-chief financial officer Cormac McCarthy, as well as Cormac Barry, who headed up the Australian division of Paddy Power until earlier this year.The funding round, which according to the company was over-subscribed, will support Banach’s business plan over the next 18 months to two years, when a further funding round is likely to take place, Hughes said.However, he admitted that “plans could change” if the US market “explodes” in the meantime – particularly given the company’s efforts to increase its exposure in relation to followers of the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL major leagues. “It will really depend on the opportunities at the time,” he said.Hughes (pictured) also added that the track records of the start-up’s investors will help to boost Banach’s reputation in the market.Founded in 2015, the company has worked with a number of the industry’s top companies, including GVC Holdings, which completed its acquisition of Ladbrokes Coral in March. Banach is currently working with Ladbrokes Coral on in-game technology during the ongoing Fifa World Cup.“There are big names among our investors and that gives us credibility,” Hughes said.“We think we’re unique in the sense that some of the work we’ve done together as a team in the past has allowed us to build platforms very quickly. We’re trying to get in the right people to build on that.” Banach to focus on major league sports after funding round 3rd July 2018 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Finance

Here is a list of 10 new rules that IPL 2021 would be played under.IPL 2021- 10 new rules that teams and players have to follow this season:1 Family and Owners to be Kept in BubbleJust like the players, their family members, as well as owners of the teams can leave the bubble only if it is highly necessary. On top of that, they will have to get a formal permission from the BCCI’s Chief Medical Officer to exit the bubble.2 Team Areas in Hotel to be Sealed OffTo ensure greater safety of the teams, BCCI has stipulated that teams should try and book entire hotels for their squads. If that is not possible, an entire wing of the hotel would be reserved for the team and would be sealed off for those not part of the group. This would prevent any chance of contact with people from outside.3 Bubble Integrity ManagersTo make sure that the teams are not violating the sanctity of the bio-bubbles, a four-member team of ‘Bubble Integrity Managers’ will be created for each side. They will ensure that players and the support staff adhere to the stringent rules. It will also be the responsibility of this group to inform the authorities about any breach of the protocols.4 Bearing Their Own ExpensesThe IPL authorities have also decided that those players who would be arriving from certain foreign locations, namely – UK, Europe, South Africa, Brazil, and Middle East would have to undergo a 7-day quarantine for which they will have to bear the costs themselves.5 Immediate Replacement of BallsWhile research has indicated that cricket balls are not likely to be dangerous carriers of the dreaded Coronavirus, still, to eliminate the risk fully, it has been decided that if a ball goes into the stands or outside the ground, it would be immediately replaced. The replaced ball won’t be discarded but sanitized and returned to the collection for further use.Also Read: IPL 2021: MS Dhoni’s CSK very worried, ‘no idea on Ravindra…6 Bubble-to-bubbleTo reduce the quarantine load on the players, BCCI has allowed players who are part of the India vs England limited-overs series to move from their existing bubble into the IPL bubble without any intervening period of isolation.7 Special Requirements for Being in ChennaiPlayers arriving in Chennai will need to provide a special e-pass that is being issued by the state government of Tamil Nadu. This is in keeping with the special rules enacted in that province.8 Three RT-PCR Tests Needed for Entering BubbleBefore entering the bubble, all those who are not coming from another bubble will have to go through three RT-PCR tests over a period of seven days. Only when they test negative in all of them would they be allowed to join the bubble.9 Separate Check-in CountersTo further keep the players away from harm, they would have separate check-in counters at the hotels. This would ensure that they remain separated from outside elements throughout their transit from rooms to field.10 No Contact Between BCCI Officials and PlayersMembers of BCCI’s top brass will not be entering any bubble, hence they would not be allowed to meet any of those who are in the bubble, be it players or officials.IPL 2021 Schedule: CSK, RCB, SRH, MI, RR, KKR, DC & Punjab Kings Full fixtures list, dates, timings, venues April 25, SundaySunrisers Hyderabad vs Delhi Capitals7:30 PMChennai May 8, SaturdayKolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals3.30 PMAhmedabad Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter WI vs SA 2nd Test Day 3 Live: Start delayed due to rain, SA lead by 149 runs – Follow Live Updates April 14, WednesdaySunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore7:30 PMChennai April 20, TuesdayDelhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians7:30 PMChennai April 30, FridayPunjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore7:30 PMAhmedabad April 18, SundayRoyal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders3:30 PMChennai May 10, MondayMumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders7.30 PMBengaluru TAGSIPL 2021IPL 2021 full ScheduleIPL 2021 new rulesIPL News players rules SHARE May 15, SaturdayKolkata Knight Riders vs Punjab Kings7.30 PMBengaluru April 9, FridayMumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore7:30 PMChennai May 4, TuesdaySunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians7.30 PMDelhi April 29, ThursdayDelhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders7:30 PMAhmedabad May 13, ThursdayMumbai Indians vs Punjab Kings3.30 PMBengaluru April 13, TuesdayKolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians7:30 PMChennai May 8, SaturdayRajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians7.30 PMDelhi May 21, FridayDelhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings7.30 PMKolkata DATE & DAYMATCHTIME (IST)VENUE WTC Final 2021 LIVE: 5 Ways to watch India vs New Zealand World Test Championship LIVE Streaming for free April 23, FridayPunjab Kings vs Mumbai Indians7:30 PMChennai CricketIndian premier leagueIndian Premier League 2021 May 6, ThursdayRoyal Challengers Bangalore vs Punjab Kings7.30 PMAhmedabad May 12, WednesdayChennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders7.30 PMBengaluru Cricket May 25, TuesdayQUALIFIER 17.30 PMAhmedabad Mumbai Indians (MI), IPL 2021 schedule: Full fixtures table, timings, venues, live streaming, Squads Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), IPL 2021 schedule: Full fixtures table, timings, venues, live streaming, SquadsChennai Super Kings, (CSK) IPL 2021 schedule: Full fixtures table, timings, venues, live streaming, SquadsDelhi Capitals (DC), IPL 2021 schedule: Full fixtures table, timings, venues, live streaming, SquadsRoyal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), IPL 2021 schedule: Full fixtures table, timings, venues, live streaming, SquadsKolkata Knight Riders (KKR), IPL 2021 schedule: Full fixtures table, timings, venues, live streaming, SquadsRajasthan Royals (RR), IPL 2021 fixtures: Full schedule, dates, timings, venues, live streaming, SquadsPunjab Kings (PBKS), IPL 2021 schedule: Full fixtures table, timings, venues, live streaming, Squads May 18, TuesdayKolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals3.30 PMBengaluru April 26, MondayPunjab Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders7:30 PMAhmedabad May 16, SundayChennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians7.30 PMBengaluru May 1, SaturdayMumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings7:30 PMDelhi April 15, ThursdayRajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals7:30 PMMumbai May 21, FridayKolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad3.30 PMBengaluru WTC Final Day 3 LIVE Score: Latham, Conway stand firm against India pace attack; NZ 36/0 (20 ovs)- Follow Live Updates April 21, WednesdayKolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings7:30 PMMumbai May 23, SundayMumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals3.30 PMKolkata April 24, SaturdayRajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders7:30 PMMumbai May 2, SundayRajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad3:30 PMDelhi April 10, SaturdayChennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals7:30 PMMumbai April 28, WednesdayChennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad7:30 PMDelhi May 7, FridaySunrisers Hyderabad vs Chennai Super Kings7.30 PMDelhi IPL 2021 : All you want to know about IPL 2021 Full schedule, New players rules and franchise will follow this IPL May 5, WednesdayRajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings7.30 PMDelhi Previous articleIPL 2021: आईपीएल फाइनल खेलने पर एक टेस्ट से चूक सकते हैं वोक्सNext articleInd vs Eng: Kohli’s India vs Dhoni’s India vs Ganguly’s India vs Kapil Dev’s India; Which is the best Indian team ever?

TAGSApopka Police DepartmentBlack Lives Matter Previous article26,000 Baby Monitors RecalledNext articleConfused About Prostate Screenings? Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply On an overcast and muggy evening 175 marchers in support of the Black Lives Matter movement walked from the Alonzo Williams Park through the streets of South Apopka to The Apopka Police Department. They chanted, “black lives matter,” “hands up, don’t shoot,” and “no justice, no peace.”They marched, they prayed, they called for unity, and an end to the violence. There were no violent incidents, and no threats to law enforcement.Representatives from the Apopka Police Department and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office attended the event, blocked off roads along the route, and led the marchers to APD headquarters.“We support the freedoms provided by our constitution and everyone’s opportunity to exercise their first amendment rights,” said APD Captain Randall Fernandez. “This march was peaceful and embodied the unity found within our community. It highlighted the support of the members of the Apopka Police Department and of the community and the community of the officers. This proud and strong relationship is key to what makes Apopka a great place to live and work.”Melvin Bolder, one of the group organizers, was pleased with the turnout both in attendance and in the varieties of people attending.“I see a lot of diversity, a lot of cultures and a lot of religions and at the end of the day that was our goal.”Earlier in the week, Bishop Kelvin Cobaris of The Impact Church in Orlando was critical of the Black Lives Matter group at a rally in support of law enforcement at the Apopka City Hall. Cobaris, who is running for Florida House District 45 (which includes Apopka south of 441 and 436), said that “If the Black Lives Matter narrative brings us to divisiveness and to hatred, and violence, then I condemn it. I stand against it.”But at the march, he explained the distinction between the narrative and the violence he condemns.“Just to help you understand the Black Lives Matter narrative better, because there is so much confusion about it all over the nation… And there are some radicals that are taking the wrong approach and being vigilantes and taking matters into their own hands. But the reality is the narrative of the black lives matter started out of the Trayvon Martin shooting and evolved into a protest of police shootings and violence against blacks…so we’re saying black lives matter too. It doesn’t mean other lives don’t matter. But the focus was about the excessive force and brutality that was going on with black males and law enforcement. So I don’t want you to misconstrue why we’re here today. We’re not here to divide. We’re not here to protest for division in Apopka. We’re here to unite.”Pastor Richard King, the Vice President of the South Apopka Ministerial Alliance, challenged the community to let their voices be heard at the upcoming elections as well as at the march.“All of us are created in the image of God, and that means that every life matters. We were made in his image. We condemn violence against anyone. But not only does every life matter, but every vote matters. There are elections coming up that are vital to this community. So do your research and vote. We can do more with a pen and in a ballot box than we can ever do on the street. We are better than that.”Pastor Darrel Morgan of the Word of Life Church in Apopka quoted from the Gospels in calling for an end to the darkness.“Jesus asked us to be the light of the world. Light gives guidance when there is none. Light is mercy. It’s time for Apopka to turn the lights on, and let the goodness of God shine through.”Pastor Hezekiah Bradford, the President of The South Apopka Ministerial Alliance and The Apopka Christian Ministerial Alliance, wants to see accountability rather than cover-ups.“This march is about peace. It’s about bringing love into our community. Yes we have major problems but we can fix them. But if the police do something that is wrong, it should not be covered up. We need to make sure they are held accountable when that sort of thing takes place. That’s what Black Lives Matters is saying. If you are wrong, own up to it. All of us can make mistakes, but in the process of making that mistake, let’s do something about it.Black Lives Matter plan to march goes in Kissimmee next Sunday (July 31st), and in Ocoee the following Sunday (August 7th). 1 COMMENT UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your comment!

The challenge of the project was to complete the project of a three-story building in a short period of time and with a limited budget. With the first two partially built floors, we had to design the third floor, finishes and facade.Save this picture!© Arturo Canseco RamirezGiven the 4 different functions of the building (shop, apartment, spa, and yoga room) we had to opt for a common aesthetic language that could serve the four programs without each of the spaces losing its identity. For this purpose we chose to invest in the floor and in the facade as highlighting and unifying elements of the building. The facade is composed of a metallic structure that holds dozens of andirons standing outside the building.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe great frame of the project, the “forest” curtain, captures the attention of passersby while protecting the interiors. Within the facade, two metal rails emerge breaking the andirons curtain and allowing contact with the outside and other stories.Save this picture!© Arturo Canseco RamirezBehind the andirons, the building, in a raw gray finish, opens large windows into the street on the first two floors and culminates on the third floor where a metal structure stands creating the yoga room. Here, the space surrounded by metal windows is protected by metal andirons, and opens to the north and south landscape.Save this picture!© Arturo Canseco RamirezThe structure ends in three inclined roofs at an industrial zigzag extending the top floor and conveying the scale and depth to the interior and exterior of the building. The interior finishes maintained the simplicity of a black floor and walls with lime finish creating an elegant and discreet contrast consistent with the store, the apartment and the SPA.Save this picture!© Arturo Canseco RamirezThe peculiarity of the floor ended up being the cut from the original Interceramic tile into two pieces thus achieving greater dynamism and a better scale that we believe is more appropriate for the spaces. The building, now known as Morillo Space, was concluded with the design and construction of all the furniture for the various areas of the building.Project gallerySee allShow lessCristián Undurraga Photographs His Pavilion for Chile at Milan ExpoArchitecture NewsNorman Foster’s Advice for the Young: “Find Something You Believe In”Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Reforma, Oaxaca, Oax., MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.

But the way farmers go about getting credit is changing. In many cases, farmers are seeing capital investments from outside of the family farm, but Lane says this does not make farming operations any less of a family farm, “You may lose a little of the Norman Rockwell view of the family farm, but today it is a business and needs to be treated like a business.” He said there is a lot of capital that is required to run a farm, rent the land, and buy the inputs, so you have approach it as a business; but, in most cases, it is still a family running the farm and owning the farm. He said 90% of FCS customers are family-run farms even if they do have outside investors. Lane noted that there are a growing number of investors who want to invest in a farming operation but do not have the skills to run a farm and that there are a growing number of operations that have outside investors that are not involved in farming the land. Will There Be Enough Credit To Support Ag Growth?But with the increasing prices of land, equipment and input costs, will there be enough credit going forward to continue to keep agriculture growing? Lane says yes, “In the future, particularly, the larger operations are going to have to get creative in accessing capital, and they are going to have to do a much better job of financial analysis and record keeping in order to attract that capital.” SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleOil Rally Falters on Government DataNext articleSeed Consultants 3/14/2013 Market Closing with Gary Wilhemy Gary Truitt SHARE Will There Be Enough Credit To Support Ag Growth? KeithKaneAgriculture needs good soil, good climate, and good people in order to thrive and survive. But, increasingly, it also needs a good source of credit to fund farming operations. Keith Lane, with Farm Credit Services of Mid-America, says one of the reasons the farm economy has been doing better than most of the rest of the economy is the good source of credit it has, “The growth we have seen in the agriculture sector is due in large part to the good access we have had to credit.” He told HAT many players have helped bring this about, “Certainly the Farm Credit System has played a major role, but many local and regional banks have also participated in making credit and capital available to farmers.” He added, since 2008, new investors have had to be found to purchase the bonds needed to provide a good source of credit for agriculture. He said, absent that source of capital, the agriculture landscape would look much different today.

RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan Help by sharing this information AfghanistanAsia – Pacific News Reporters Without Borders condemns a night-time attack by eight gunmen on Radio Paiman in the northeastern city of Baghlan on 31 January and calls on the local police to carry out an exhaustive investigation with the aim of identifying those responsible. The assailants beat and gagged the guard and then destroyed all the equipment. No journalist was injured.“Attacks on journalists have increased since the start of the year, which makes their work particularly difficult in this region,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Armed Islamist groups are the main predators of free expression in Afghanistan but we have been told that local police officers have also been involved in cases of violence against the media.”Radio Paiman director Shir Mohammad Jahesh said he had moved the radio station closer to the police station after receiving Taliban telephone threats. Nonetheless, the police took too long to get to the radio station on the night of the attack to be able to catch the assailants.No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, which has been condemned by Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid as a violation of freedom of expression.Under its mandate to help independent media, Reporters Without Borders will provide financial assistance to Radio Paiman’s staff so that they can resume broadcasting as soon as possible.

May 28, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Gaza Strip prosecutor-general Ismail Jaber told journalists on 25 July that Ma’an News and Al-Arabiya TV were being closed down for the sake of public order. He accused them of “fabricating news and disseminating false rumours and baseless reports that threaten civil peace and undermine the Palestinian people’s resistance.” News News Reporters Without Borders welcomes the Hamas government’s decision to let the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reopen its Gaza City bureau. The government closed it in July after it quoted Israeli sources as saying Hamas was providing refuge to Muslim Brotherhood officials who had fled Egypt.“This decision is important for freedom of information in the Gaza Strip even if it just constitutes a return to normal,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is positive, but it only rescinds a closure order that was arbitrary and unacceptable.”Reporters Without Borders regrets that no decision has so far been taken on the reopening of the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV’s Gaza City bureau, which was closed at the same time.“Palestinian journalists must be able to cover sensitive subjects without being threatened or pressured by the authorities, political parties or armed groups,” Reporters Without Borders added.The Ma’an News Agency bureau’s reopening was announced on 16 November after a meeting between the Gaza Strip’s prime minister, Ismael Haniyeh, and the representatives of various Palestinian factions, which did not, however, include Fatah.Ma’an News Agency general director Raed Othman welcomed the decision and said the bureau would resume operating as soon as its staff were allowed back into their offices. When Gaza Strip prosecutor-general Ismail Jaber closed the Ma’an News Agency and Al-Arabiya TV bureaux on 25 July, he accused them of “fabricating news and disseminating false rumours and baseless reports that threaten civil peace and undermine the Palestinian people’s resistance.” Reporters Without Borders calls for the immediate reopening of the Ma’an News and Al-Arabiya TV bureaux in Gaza City, which the Hamas government closed on 25 July after they reported that Hamas was sheltering Muslim Brotherhood officials who had fled Egypt.“Closing news bureaux for covering matters of public interest, even when they are sensitive, constitutes a gross violation of freedom of information, which is already endangered in the Gaza Strip by the Hamas government’s ban on any cooperation between Palestinian and Israeli media,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Palestinian media personnel must be allowed to express themselves freely, without being subjected to pressure from government officials or political parties,” the media freedom organization added.

He added that the main reason for the bureau’s closure was the agency’s use of the sources of an Israeli new media, Mena News Agency.
