Hawkeye in line to be GLT provider

first_img The system is understood to have been recommended as the preferred option to a meeting of the 20 top-flight clubs. A German system, GoalControl, has also been under consideration after submitting a tender. If the recommendation is accepted it means Hawkeye’s camera-based system will be in place at Premier League grounds and Wembley Stadium from next season. Press Association Hawkeye, which was sold to technology giant Sony two years ago, already provides systems for tennis and cricket. The Premier League provided seed money to help Hawkeye develop a goal-line technology system back in 2007, but there is no longer a formal relationship with the company. League chiefs made their recommendation based on both cost and ease of implementation and use. Earlier this month FIFA chose GoalControl, which is also a camera-based system, for the Confederations Cup in Brazil in June and next year’s World Cup finals. Two other systems, also German, have also been licensed by FIFA but they both use magnetic sensors rather than cameras. Former Arsenal and FA vice-chairman David Dein, who has long campaigned for goal-line technology, claimed every top-flight referee in England was in favour of having a system. He said at the Soccerex conference in Manchester: “The Premier League will be the first league in Europe to introduce it. I have been on this campaign for six or seven years and now it’s going to happen. The referees need help, the camera will always beat the eye, and every referee in the Premier League is in favour of it.” center_img British-based firm Hawkeye is expected to be named as the provider of goal-line technology for the Premier League later today.last_img read more

Mikel Praises Eagles even in Defeat

first_imgEven in Nigeria’s fifth defeat to Argentina at the World Cup, Captain of the Super Eagles, John Mikel Obi, yesterday praised his colleagues for putting up brave fight against the two-time champions.Rather than be sad that Nigeria exited the Russia 2018 in the group stage here in St Petersburg last night, the former Chelsea midfielder said at the post match conference that Super Eagles that was the youngest team at this edition deserves praises for battling Argentina with her superstars to standstill before bowing out.“It’s a shame we couldn’t continue the amazing journey we had. This is a great team of young players. I believe in the next four years, they are going to turn out a fantastic team to look forward to, “ stressed the Tianjin Teda of China player. Nigeria lost qualifying for the Round of 16 of the Russia 2018 to a late Marco Rojo winner after Victor Moses had canceled out Lionel Messi’s lead through a penalty. Javier Mascherano’s foul on Leon Balogun in the box was expertly converted by the Chelsea wingback.“It’s a fantastic team that will be ready for the next World Cup in four years. We have a group of boys who listen and want to improve and we have had a great time since the coach (Gernot Rohr) took charge.”Asked if he was still going to be around for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, Mikel said time will tell as he was going to study the situation and take things one at a time.Argentina will now face France in Kazan in a Round of 16 clash next week.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Rightlander elevates reach with global expansion

first_imgShare Senet Australia appoints Paul Newsom as new client advisory lead  August 27, 2020 Flutter moves to refine merger benefits against 2020 trading realities August 27, 2020 Share Related Articles SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020 Submit StumbleUpon Affiliate compliance tool for the iGaming industry, Rightlander has announced the expansion of its scanning capabilities to 35 new territories.Until recently, Rightlander’s main focus was on the UK market where affiliate compliance has become the responsibility of operators to police. The scanning tool visits affiliate sites from within the UK and looks for specific words, phrases, T&Cs, images and events that it’s operator clients have specified, producing succinct “alerts” that help affiliate managers and compliance officers to quickly hone in on potential affiliate compliance issues.The new geo-targeted version of the tool will be able to scan affiliate sites from within its regulated territories including Australia, Sweden, The USA, Greece, Germany, The Netherlands and many more. It is able to detect a website’s language and search for words, phrases and images in that language that link an operator’s brand to potentially non-compliant marketing messages.Ian Sims, founder and CEO of Rightlander commented: “Rightlander’s priorities are largely driven by our clients’ requirements and we provide data to several large companies dealing in multiple regulated or soon to be regulated territories, so it was only a matter of time before we expanded beyond the UK.”Recent announcements have seen a ban on bonus advertising in New South Wales, the regulation of sports betting in certain US States and the announcement of the 1st of January 2019 deadline for Swedish regulation to kick in.Sims emphasised: “The immediate priority for several of our clients seems to be to ensure that affiliates marketing their brands in Sweden are clean and compliant before the regulations kick in. We also have clients with a pressing need to explore the affiliate site landscape in Greece and Australia whose regulatory regime is already causing issues with affiliate marketing.”He continued, emphasising that one of the biggest challenges is the USA where state-level regulation presents very specific geo-targeting issues: “We have to treat each State as a separate territory so we have set up proxies and VPN access points in each State. This will enable us to not only view content from within a regulated State but to also see how it appears outside of those boundaries in non-regulated States. Both sets of data will together help to monitor affiliate marketing in what will undoubtedly be a very strict compliance regime.”last_img read more

BtoBet’s Alessandro Fried: Tackling the compliance conundrum for European operators

first_img BtoBet grows LatAm portfolio with GlobalBet deal August 12, 2020 StumbleUpon Share BtoBet grows Nigerian presence with Booster99 deal August 26, 2020 Related Articles Share Submit BtoBet refines African SMS payment options with Tola Mobile  August 20, 2020 The concept of a tournament hosted by multiple countries across Europe bodes well for the sports betting industry, writes BtoBet Chairman Alessandro Fried. However, bookmakers are facing significant challenges, primarily in terms of compliance. Compliance was a key focus in our recent industry report ‘The Euro 2020 Challenge: Retaining your market share’, as well as the unique opportunity to increase market share across the continent.The evolving nature of technology has been met with the introduction of various rules and regulations governing the sector, especially from a payment gateway and responsible data usage point of view, with local governing bodies keen to strengthen their responsible gaming policies, as well as AML and data protection procedures. Whilst innovation is particularly important in an environment where differentiation is key and has a direct impact on the operator’s market share, the European industry has become ever more stringent from a regulatory perspective. Many regulators are committed to reducing this burden, and to working with the industry for effective regulation, because uncertainty, changes and conflicting demands on iGaming operators and suppliers adds both cost and confusion to businesses, as well as the associated negative impact on profit margins.The general consensus is that whilst the introduction of strong regulations is a move in the right direction for the whole iGaming industry – with both operators and players gaining significant benefits from a regularized scenario – the legislative frameworks implemented on a national level are becoming ever more distinct from each other, contributing to this confusion. In essence, the online gaming regulatory measures drafted and adopted by countries in the same region are so different from one another. This makes it harder for operators with a multi-national footprint relying on their own in-house technology to comply with all the different requirements.BtoBet believes that meeting compliance demands can be worse for those larger operators still relying on legacy technology. The adaption of this technology to new and continuously changing regulatory requirements is no easy feat, and will ultimately translate itself in an increased time-to-market solution at a risk of losing market share. The lack of technological dexterity manifested in their approach has resulted in them prioritizing their efforts on those markets they could adapt to quickly depending on the regulatory framework.Meanwhile, our report also looks on aspects how operators could differentiate themselves and improve the user experience by offering the best and most diverse product portfolio. This is especially important now there is such a big focus amongst platform providers on improving the efficiency and scalability of their own product to seamlessly expand to different markets while still meeting all the necessities required by the local frameworks.For more insight, please download the full report HERE. Fried will be speaking at this week’s Betting on Sports conference. He will be joining a panel on ‘UX – revolutionising the customer journey’ as part of the second day ‘Technology in Focus’ track.last_img read more

Robert Wood Johnson-Barnabas Merge

first_imgA MERGER BETWEEN two individual health care giants have them coming together this week creating what will be the one of the largest health care system in the nation and the biggest in the state.Representatives from Barnabas Health and Robert Wood Johnson Health System on Tuesday put pens to paper to an agreement that, if approved by the state, would create a connecting series of medical facilities extending from north Jersey to the shore.The newly merged entity, a not-for-profit, will be known as RWJ Barnabas Health. The state Office of the Attorney General has to approve the deal before the merger can be finalized. Representatives from the health care companies are expecting the review to be completed sometime next year.If finalized, the new company is expected to have annual operating revenues of more than $4.5 billion, with 260,000 inpatient admissions, 2 million outpatient visits and approximately 700,000 emergency department visits and 23,000 births. There will be 30,000 employees, 9,000 physicians and 1,000 residents and interns, according to information provided by the health care systems.Barnabas operates Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, in Monmouth County. With the joining of the two systems it will have partners in Hudson, Essex, Union, Middlesex, Mercer, Somerset and Ocean counties. RWJ Barnabas Health will operate 11 acute care hospitals, three children’s hospitals, a pediatric rehabilitation hospital, a behavioral health center, ambulatory care centers, along with five fitness and wellness centers.Barnabas is the largest not-for-profit integrated health care system in the state. It currently has 21,000 employees, roughly 5,200 physicians and 500 residents.Robert Wood Johnson currently employees more than 12,000, and 3,250 in medical staff, generating $1.6 million in revenue annually.“The new health system will comprise effectively ever y clinical service from primary to advanced care and greatly strengthen our commitment to medical education and research,” said Barry H. Ostrowsky, Barnabas Health’s president and chief executive officer.This deal will also allow for greater economies in scale while promoting the highest over an expanded geographical area, according to representatives. “Because our organizations have a shared vision for how health care should be delivered and our traditional service areas are complementary, we expect a smooth transition process,” said Jack Morris, chair of the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital board of directors.This is the latest in a spate of mergers and coupling among health care providers in the state of late. This spring Meridian Health System, which operates Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune, River view Medical Center in Red Bank and Bayshore Community Hospital, Holmdel, in Monmouth County alone announced it’s joining with the smaller Raritan Medical Center, in Middlesex County, and also merged with Hackensack University HealthSystems in separate deals.
In April a Meridian executive said the current crop of joint ventures is precipitated by changes brought about by the federal Affordable Care Act and an evolving business paradigm in the health care industry.last_img read more

Alia takes swimming to new levels

first_imgLONDON was Alia Atkinson’s third Olympic Games but it was also her breakthrough moment and her performance there catapulted Jamaican swimming to a whole new level. Atkinson first competed in Athens in 2004 and finished 25th in the 200m breaststroke in Beijing in 2008, but as a 23-year-old with college experience under her belt, Atkinson went to a third Olympic Games. Having tied with Canadian Tera van Beilen for eighth place in the semi-finals of the women’s 100m breaststroke, Atkinson was forced to swim off with the North American to decide a spot in the final. Then-Amateur Swimming Association of Jamaica president, Martin Lyn recalls the intensity of the experience. “At first she was a little almost nervous even though it was her third Olympics but as she progressed she became more and more confident. That came to a head when the swim-off occurred. She was ready to swim but the Canadians wanted to put the swim-off to the next day and we (Jamaican officials) ensured that the swim occurred within hours of the previous swim and because she was so fit and ready she was able to perform and she won the swim off by metres,” Lyn told The Gleaner. The swimmer was supported by members of the Jamaican contingent in the Olympic Pool at the finals in London and they watched as Atkinson came within metres of a bronze medal. She eventually finished fourth Lyn, who was president of the ASAJ from 2009-2015, said Atkinson’s exploits in London helped to attract more interest and sponsors to the sport, as the image of swimming being one for elitists, slowly shifted. “The popularity of aquatics definitely grew as a result of Alia’s performance and more sponsors became aware. It takes more work for us to push sponsorship and to bring up other Alia’s in Jamaica and we have in Jamaica which are very many (like her). We have a great programme and I see where we can produce many more Olympians in the pool,” Lyn said. He added that the increased sponsorship helped the association to send Atkinson to events overseas which helped improve her stature as well. “It (London) was the first time she was swimming against Europeans because she had never been to Europe and we were able to send her to Europe after that which is why she has been able to do so much better,” he noted. Atkinson, now 27, is looking forward to her fourth Olympics. Since 2012 she became the first black woman to win a world title when she set a world record in the 100m breaststroke at the 2014 Short Course World Championships in Doha, Qatar. Atkinson also won a bronze medal in 100m breaststroke and silver in the 50m breaststroke at the Long Course World Championships in Kazan, Russia in 2015.last_img read more

MCC Turns over 3 Bikes to CBEs

first_imgAuthorities of the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC) yesterday turned over three brand new TVS five star motorbikes it has purchased at the cost of US$10,000 to three Community Based Enterprises (CBEs) in Monrovia and its environs.The motorbikes were turned over to the Swaray and Dunbar in St, Paul Bridge, the Alpha Sanitation in the slum community of West point and the United Group located in Sinkor Old Road. “Authorities of those three sanitation groups that the bikes have been assigned to are expected to use their bikes to collect plastics from the streets and in their respective neighborhoods, and school campuses. They are not, however, intended for garbage collection,” Abraham B.Y. Jusu Garneo, MCC’s Director-General of Service programs told the beneficiaries as he presented the bikes to each of them. The tough looking Chinese made auto 200cc bikes are neatly inscribed with ‘Operation Attack Plastic’. MCC bought the bikes to complement the plastics collection exercise that was launched last year, under the code name, “Operation Attack Plastics.” President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf launched “Operation Attack Plastics” which brought together 13 schools from the Monrovia Consolidated School System that participated in picking up used and unwanted plastic materials in the streets and communities within the municipality of Monrovia.The involvement of the students, MCC said, was intended to bring about competition among the participating schools, following which trophies in first, second and third categories were presented to the winners. The MCC provided hygienic and sanitary materials including gloves, boots, and helmets to be used by the students to protect them while carrying out the plastic collection.In remarks following the presentation, Caine Prince Andrews, MCC’s Director-General for Internal Operations, underscored the importance of “Operation Attack Plastics,” noting that the bikes are part of the sustainability of the project. Madam Mai Dunbar, Swaray and Dunbar Sanitation General Manager, on behalf of her colleagues, expressed appreciation to the MCC, and promised to maintain the bikes and use them for the purpose the MCC has intended.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
