Regions: US Nevada Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Nevada sees gaming market recovery continue in July Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Nevada gaming revenue grew 33.5% month-over-month to $756.8m in July, as the state’s recovery from its novel coronavirus (Covid-19) shut-down continued, with the sports betting vertical rebounding from June’s loss.However, July’s total still represented a 26.1% decline from the prior year, at a time when social distancing requirements are in place, and rising Covid-19 cases have prompted new restrictions in some state counties.The $756.8m total included a $210.4m contribution from table, counter and card games, down 35.9% year-on-year, but featuring a much-improved performance from sports betting.After June saw the vertical post its first monthly loss in almost seven years, revenue rebounded in July, reaching $6.3m. However, this again represented a decline on the prior year’s revenue of $10.5m.Based on a win percentage of 3.85%, amounts wagered in the state came to $163.5m – more than double June’s $77.9m total – of which $112.9m was staked via mobile devices. Baseball, in a month where Major League Baseball began its regular season, was the most popular US sport, accounting for $65.4m of stakes and $4.4m of revenue.However, other sports represented by properties outside the US major leagues continued to account for the majority of spending and yield, contributing $80.3m in stakes, and $5.5m of revenue.Read the full story on iGB North America.center_img 26th August 2020 | By contenteditor Casino & games AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Addresslast_img read more

But the biggest sporting event on planet earth leaves an everlasting impact on the minds of people across the world. According to an independent survey report, Olympic Rings – the Olympic Games emblem – happen to be the most-widely recognised symbol in the world.Nine out of the 10 in the survey correctly identified the Olympic symbol in a consumer research survey following the Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang last year.

Some 93 per cent of respondents were aware of the Olympic Games – more than any other major sporting or entertainment event. The Games also scored highest for appeal, with a mean rating of 7.5 out of 10, states on a the official IOC website study by Publicis Sport & Entertainment in March last year had surveyed 36,000 people, aged from 13 to 65, in 16 countries.Also Read: Tokyo 2020 unveils Olympic Torch, Relay Emblem and Official AmbassadorsWeightlifting will remain Olympic sport for 2024With regard to the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, which had concluded shortly before the survey, the study found that 65% of people considered the Games to have been a success. A total 75% of the respondents came from the Republic of Korea, the host nation for the Games. The average “enjoyment” score amongst South Korean spectators for the PyeongChang 2018 experience was 9/10.The opportunities and benefits of hosting the Olympic Games were also widely acknowledged in the study, with 77% believing that staging the Games leaves the host with many benefits and 72%stating that hosting the Games is an opportunity for economic development.Reflecting on the results of the study, IOC President Thomas Bach commented: “The Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 were a success in so many respects. This latest research clearly demonstrates the strength of not only the Olympic Games, but also the Olympic values. In today’s fragile society, it is heartening to see that people still recognise the significance of these values and look to the IOC to bring the entire world together in peace.”The global impact of the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 was underlined by record broadcast coverage and a massive increase in digital viewership, continuing a trend witnessed at recent Games.According to a global broadcast report, also published by Publicis Sport & Entertainment, more than a quarter of the world’s population (1.92 billion people) watched coverage of the Olympic Winter Games across various media platforms, with the huge advances in digital coverage making these the most digitally viewed Olympic Winter Games ever.In total, the IOC’s various broadcast partners around the world made more coverage available from PyeongChang than any previous Olympic Winter Games, with output across linear and digital platforms increasing by 38% from Sochi 2014.“By embracing the digital age, we have been able to offer Olympic fans around the world new ways to experience the Olympic Games while also reaching out to the younger generation more than ever before,” added President Bach. “As this research shows, we are not only successfully communicating the sports excellence and the athletes’ achievements, but also the Olympic spirit and what it means.”In particular, there was huge growth in the amount of digital coverage available on the websites, apps and social media channels of Rights-Holding Broadcasters (RHBs), resulting in a 62% increase from Sochi 2014.This increased digital coverage received a total of 3.2 billion video views – more than double the number of digital video views recorded during Sochi 2014.Also Read: IOC, SPN confirm Tokyo 2020 Olympics broadcast dealIndia keen to host Special Olympics: Special Olympics BharatTokyo 2020 unveils robots for the Olympic Games Euro 2020 – Germany beat Portugal 4-2: Germany bounce back with thrilling 4-2 win over Portugal to revive Euro hopes Cricket IND vs NZ in WTC Final: India batting coach says, ‘score above 250 on Day 3 would be good’, Kyle Jamieson feels it won’t…last_img read more

Gavin Newsom announced sporting events without spectators may resume as early as June, and people could be attending small church meetings and visiting hair salons in a few weeks.Counties will be given the opportunity to apply for approval to transition into Stage 3 of the four stage reopening process, and then Newsom will issue a statewide order offering the opportunity to all counties.Pasadena, which has its own health department, most likely will not have to wait for LA County to transition to the next stage.The state is currently transitioning to Stage 2, when businesses with a lower risk of spreading COVID-19 will reopen. Gyms and hair salons can open in Stage 3, and large gatherings like sporting events and concerts will return in Stage 4.Newsom said 53 of the state’s 58 counties are eligible to move into Stage 2.The governor has given several sectors statewide permission to open, including curbside-pickup retail and office spaces where teleworking isn’t possible, and most counties have introduced these modifications to their orders.Pasadena’s health department issued an order last week opening all retail businesses that provide curbside service, practice social distancing and follow specific guidelines.Counties no longer need to hit the near impossible marker requiring them to go two weeks without a new coronavirus death and instead must meet new goals for testing, infections and hospitalizations, including less than 25 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents over the last 14 days.

first_imgOxford Fashion Week 2011 kicked off on Monday amidst complaints from models and the production team.One team member, who wished to remain anonymous, described how she had suggested partnering OFW with eating disorder charity BEAT, but was told that it would be “too much effort” to ensure that none of the models had problems of this kind. A model in OFW 2009 told Cherwell, “I was exploited…because at the time I was quite seriously ill. I think a number of the other girls involved were. Looking back, there’s no way [the organisers] could not have realised.”However, many models involved in OFW were positive about their experiences. Model Becky Knott said, “I’ve found it really well organised, and we’ve been treated well”.In what has been seen as an effort to combat negative images of the fashion industry OFW is linked with Models for Diversity. One model said, “There’s no discrimination. They made an effort to include people of all different sizes.”OFW’s Press Officer Alyx Barker commented, “After watching the lingerie show I was really pleased with the range of models used. It was great to see some normal sized models looking fantastic and healthy.”However some dissatisfied volunteers even have gone so far as to quit OFW altogether. One described the experience as “massively stressful”, and explained that she had been spending up to seven hours a day on OFW, even though producer and founder Carl Anglim knew the time pressures already facing students. When contacted by Cherwell, Anglim refused to comment.In an email to the OFW team, Anglim said, “Oxford Fashion Week demands a limitless amount of time from each of you. I promise you that those who have used this opportunity to test themselves will be reaping the long term benefits.”Ticket prices have also been criticised. The Couture Show this year cost £30 per person and prices have been similarly high since OFW’s conception. However, the 2009 annual return for Oxford Fashion Limited, the company which runs OFW, and of which Anglim is a director, shows a net loss of £7,670.Anglim reportedly told a member of the production team that he didn’t expect to break even this year either. One OFW team member said that scheduling it at the same time as Paris Fashion Week had led to a number of logistical problems. “The champagne is still in Champagne,” she added.Another volunteer told Cherwell, “OFW has been over-sold to partners. Despite attempts to make OFW open…budget restraints mean that basic marketing activities cannot take place.”He did add, having seen the Couture Show, that “Despite these issues the team have put together something really special. I was astounded at the level of production.”Sponsors of OFW were also positive about their involvement. Richard Rosser, of B4 Business Magazine, said that they were proud to be a media sponsor. He said, “What they’ve delivered has been absolutely fantastic. They did what they promised and more.”Anglim told in February, “Oxford is a fantastic city and it is madness that there was no major fashion festival before we created Oxford Fashion Week in 2009.”last_img read more

first_imgLoad remaining images Yesterday, Leftover Salmon kicked off their yearly spooky soiree at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. The Stanley Hotel is a beautiful, old hotel nestled in the shadows of Rocky Mountain National Park, best known for its haunted halls which inspired Stephen King to write The Shining. For the third year in a row, Leftover has taken this idea and run with it, crafting a glorious multi-day celebration of all things eerie, packing each day with all manner of activities and inviting other artists to join them in the fun. For the inaugural day of this year’s event, two other Colorado bands, The Sweet Lillies and Deadphish Orchestra, helped Leftover kick off the weekend, coming together for a full day of magical and macabre musical moments.Just getting to Estes Park from the main cities along the front range is a trek, with the multiple-hour drive on the winding mountain roads leading to the remote town setting the mood for guests before ever setting foot on The Stanley Hotel’s grounds. On Friday, The Sweet Lillies were the first performance of the weekend, and before their set at 6 o’clock, attendees milled around the grounds and roamed the hallways, some already zombified or monstrous (and definitely startling the handful of somewhat-horrified regular vacationers who stumbled into the event) after taking advantage of the complimentary face-painting station by the hotel’s front desk.©Jay BlakesbergThe Sweet Lillies performance was the perfect way to start the day’s festivities. Those who weren’t dancing or watching the group throw down helped themselves to the free libations provided by Breckenridge Brewery’s beer tasting and the tables of finger food in the back of the ballroom. An incredibly convincing Jack Nicholson impersonator (or potentially Jack Nicholson himself) wandered the outskirts of the room, sparking laughter or debates among the groups who noticed him meandering about.However, most in the hall were enraptured by The Sweet Lillies, who put on a wonderful performance chock full of upbeat and danceable numbers that built up energy for the rest of the night. The five onstage were reminiscent of an older time, adding an air of authenticity to the weekend as the weekend’s “opening scene,” as the Lillies played a soulful combination of Americana and bluegrass. Toward the middle of their performance, Colin Herman, the son of Leftover’s Vince Herman, joined them on stage and took over the bass for a song before leaving the quintet to it for a slower, heartfelt tune. Their original songs took up the majority of their set, though the group squeezed in a buoyant cover of Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” and Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Bad Moon Rising,” both of which elicited whoops and hollers from within the McGregor Ballroom.©Jay BlakesbergBy the time the Sweet Lillies left the stage, the sun had begun to set and excitement around the rest of the night was rightfully on the rise. People took advantage of the brief break between the Sweet Lillies and Leftover Salmon’s first performance of the weekend, putting on costumes before wandering to the main concert hall where Leftover was performing. Thus, Friday night was all about costumes, with Leftover playing to an audience sprinkled with zombies, witches, and ghouls, and the band members themselves donning costumes, musical and otherwise.Leftover Salmon’s first set was diverse, with the song choices tied together by the spooky and funky theme of the evening. This set was primarily dedicated to a range of covers, as was only appropriate for the costume ball, though originals “Head Bag” and “Funky Mountain Fogdown” made the cut and were placed squarely in the middle of the set. Harry Belafonte’s “Zombie Jamboree” kicked things off, and the crowd was more than amped for its start and ready to see what Fidel Castro (Vince Herman), Satan (Andy Hall), Ghostface from the Scream movies (Greg Garrison), and three zombies (Drew Emmitt, Eric Deutsch, Alywyn Robinson) had in store.©Jay BlakesbergThe first set moved through more obscure covers such as “Hoodoo Bash” and more well-known songs such as  The Allman Brothers’ “Whipping Post” with a good ol’ fashioned bluegrass breakdown and set-closing Jimi Hendrix’s “Hey Joe.” A highlight from this set was Al Wilson’s “The Snake,” which marked the start of a build toward a huge close to the set. Sung by Andy Hall and featuring a particularly spooky and synth-y solo by Eric Deutsch, after its climax, “The Snake” settled back into its laid back and steady groove, which helped slowly whisper away for a stripped-down ending.After the costume contest, which awarded a pair of tickets to Leftover Salmon’s Red Rocks performance this summer to Beetlejuice, the band returned to the stage for their second set celebrating the (Grateful) Dead. They kicked things off with “Alabama Getaway” and then “Scarlet Begonias,” which hinted to the crowd that there just might be a Grateful Dead set. As Drew took the lead on “Cold Rain and Snow,” the Dead set was all but confirmed.©Jay Blakesberg“Pasta,” Leftover Salmon’s take on “Fire On The Mountain,” started out with the traditional pasta-themed lyrics before moving briefly in The Talking Heads’ “Burning Down The House” and then into the “Kind Bud” lyrics. This kicked off a nonstop jam segment, which moved through “Going Down The Road Feeling Bad” and “Friend of the Devil,” though Leftover still worked in teases of other crowdpleasing tracks like the traditional “Rocky Top” before moving into a final reprise of “Pasta.”After “Jack A Row,” which Vince Herman affectionately referred to as “Jack Nicholson A Row” at its close, Leftover moved into “Playing In The Band” sung by Greg Garrison. “Playing In The Band” was used as a launching pad for an ambient “Space” jam. Their sound was huge during this segment, with Andy Hall going into full devil mode and using his toy pitchfork as a slide throughout, before the discordant sound beautifully and slowly restructured itself into the close of “Playing In The Band.”©Jay Blakesberg“Ragged But Right” came next, a traditional tune that gave its name to an album by the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band, before closing with “New Speedway Boogie.” The audience sang along for this night-closing tune, with the band eventually working the song into an a capella close. The crowd kept singing the chorus as the members of the band silently put down their instruments and walked off stage, leaving people eager for an encore that never came, with eventually the house lights and music coming on to signal Leftover’s night was over.The late-night music, appropriate to Leftover’s second set, featured Deadphish Orchestra. Playing until late into the morning after Salmon’s end around midnight, Deadphish Orchestra greeted the trickling crowd in the hotel’s main building with classic tunes by The Grateful Dead and Phish. The energy in the room was high and the vibe celebratory, with the dance floor jam packed as the quartet moved through its similarly spooky-themed setlist featuring tracks like “Wolfman’s Brother,” “Mr. Charlie” (which featured Vince Herman appearing to help out on vocals), and “Ghost.” Their performance was a great way to close out a great day, leaving guests eager for the rest of the weekend.©Jay BlakesbergYou can check out the setlist from Leftover Salmon’s set below, as well as a gallery provided by photographer Jay Blakesberg below.

Along with tuning into the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, eating too much turkey and perfecting that pumpkin pie recipe with grandma, there is one tradition that almost always seems to go down: drama, whether it’s about politics or the best way to cook the bird. Tony winners Matthew Broderick and James Corden joined forces to sing “Fugue for Turkeys.” Inspired by Guys and Dolls’ “Fugue for Tinhorns,” the performance involves an epic dance break with Broderick and Corden holding poultry, so what’s not to love?

first_imgSource: VLS. 10.2.2009. SOUTH ROYALTON, VT- Vermont Law School has been awarded $3 million by the US Agency for International Development to expand its work on the US-China Partnership for Environmental Law over the next three years, VLS President and Dean Geoffrey Shields announced today. This award, which is an extension of a $1.8 million USAID funding agreement that US Senator Patrick Leahy was instrumental in helping to secure for Vermont Law School in 2006, will enable VLS to continue to build on its successes in helping China develop its next generation of environmental advocates to strengthen the development and enforcement of China’s environmental and energy law.”We thank USAID and the American people for their continued support for and recognition of the importance and effectiveness of this program,” said Dean Shields. “The U.S. and China share a deep interest in reversing environmental degradation. Vermont Law School has proven to be an effective bridge in those efforts. VLS is now the leader among academic institutions in furthering efforts to support China as it strengthens its legal environmental framework.”Leahy, who chairs the Subcommittee on the State Department and Foreign Operations of the Senate Appropriations Committee, played a key role in promoting USAID’s sponsorship of the partnership. He said, “This partnership is a superb fit, tapping VLS’s strengths in environmental law to help build the legal expertise and advocacy skills Chinese lawyers and civil society groups need to help meet the daunting environmental, energy and development challenges China is facing.  It’s a partnership as timely as today’s headlines.”In 2006, with funding from USAID, VLS in collaboration with Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU), located in the capital of Guangdong province in southern China, launched the U.S.-China Partnership for Environmental Law in response to the critical lack of knowledge, skills, and academic infrastructure needed to begin to address environmental and energy challenges in China through the rule of law. It has provided a broad range of trained attorneys, legal educators, law students, lawmakers, judges, regulators, and other advocates in Guangdong Province and in Beijing.In addition to significantly strengthening SYSU’s environmental law program and creating a Juris Master’s degree program specializing in environmental law at SYSU, the program has established a strong, active network of environmental law professionals in the province. It has also expanded the collaborative effort to other influential educational institutions on the national level, such as the China University of Political Science and Law (CUPL), Center of Legal Assistance for Pollution Victims (CLAPV), and Tsinghua University as well as key Chinese government agencies, such as the State Electricity Regulatory Commission, which is the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission counterpart, and the training center for the National Development and Reform Commission, China’s primary macroeconomic planning and management agency under the State Council that is responsible for developing China’s climate change policies.Professor Tseming Yang, who has been the director of the program since 2007, said, “Our work over the past three years has put us in a unique position to further advance environmental governance in China. The USAID support will enable us to develop greater capacity in China for citizens, organizations, and institutions to influence the development of environmental law through enhanced participation in government.”China’s rapid growth in manufacturing has resulted in severe environmental problems, including the production of greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming and pollution worldwide. According to a recent report, China has now overtaken the U.S. in total carbon emissions-years earlier than recently predicted. Two thirds of China’s energy derives from coal, and rising industrialization has the country mining and burning more than ever, as well as shopping for other countries’ oil and gas. Yet while China approaches parity in the economic sphere, it lags far behind in the legal structures and mechanisms that underpin American environmental law and policy. Developing well-trained legal professionals, law professors, and effective regulatory policies and laws is a critical part of China’s pursuit of sustainable development.With the $3 million in additional funding, the program will continue to carry out its primary objectives of: (1) strengthening the capacity of the Chinese educational, governmental, nonprofit, and business sectors to become effective environmental and energy problem solvers; (2) improving China’s policies, systems, laws, and regulations to advance the development and enforcement of environmental and energy law and to help develop the rule of law; and (3) enhancing municipal, provincial, national, and international networks in China to advance best practices in environmental protection and energy regulation.The program will provide training to Chinese legal educators, attorneys, lawmakers, utility analysts, and regulators on environmental law, with a particular emphasis on energy law. It will continue to support the development, strengthening, and expansion of institutions, associations, and networks that advance environmental law in China. Furthermore, in collaboration with VLS’s implementing partners, the program will foster a variety of research and policy development projects. Priority areas for research include environmental impact assessment, policy options for reducing China’s environmental footprint globally, energy law, environmental enforcement and governance, and climate change.VLS’s key partners in this program include SYSU, CLAPV at China University of Political Science and Law, Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP), and the China Environment Forum (CEF) at the Woodrow Wilson Training Center. SYSU, a leading Chinese educational institution located in Guangzhou, established one of the first environmental law clinics in China and now has developed a juris master program in environmental law.

In 1961, the Foreign Assistance Act was signed into law and USAID was created by executive order. Since that time, USAID has been the principal U.S. agency to extend assistance to countries recovering from disaster, trying to escape poverty, and engaging in democratic reforms.In addition to its work under the USAID grant, VLS is leading a U.S.-China exchange program for young professionals. The program provides leadership training opportunities to nine Chinese and nine American women and men, particularly members of minority groups, who are active in environmental justice efforts. Participants in the program will jointly examine the environmental burdens, including climate change impacts, on minority communities and low-income populations in the U.S. and China and will propose ways to advance environmental justice for those communities.
