  • Thumbs Up! Sierra Boggess & Julian Ovenden Lead an Enchanted Evening

    first_img Star Files The halls were alive with—oh, you know—on October 9, as Carnegie Hall welcomed Sierra Boggess and Julian Ovenden to the stage for the New York Pops’ opening night, My Favorite Things: The Songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein. The set list from music director and conductor Steven Reineke was perfectly structured, with the 33rd season opener spoiling attendees with rich melodies, soaring voices and a chance to visit an entire iconic cannon in one night. Ovenden, who served as a last-minute replacement for Steven Pasquale, appeared unfazed and charming, his sultry tenor to “Edelweiss,” providing a sneak peek to what ITV audiences might expect later this year in the U.K.’s new live telecast of The Sound of Music. Boggess was just as entranced as the audience; during her performance of “A Wonderful Guy” from South Pacific, the Audience Choice Award winner glided across the stage in adoration, beaming at Reineke and the musicians between verses. During duets, their chemistry permeated the venue, and when the pair joined forces with the Essential Voices USA choir for “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” the impact was particularly powerful. All in all, the evening was a perfect start to the Pops’ 2015-16 season! View Commentscenter_img Sierra Boggesslast_img read more

  • Salah, Messi, CR7 up for Globe award

    first_imgRelatedPosts Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says UCL: Benfica kicked out by player who left club one week earlier + other results MultiChoice unveils sport channels, content line-up Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been named among the four finalists of the 2019 Best Men’s Player of the Year Globe Soccer Award. Salah was initially nominated for the award back in October with Sadio Mane, Cristiano Ronaldo, Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk, Bernardo Silva, and Lionel Messi. However, the list of nominees has now been shortened to just four names as Salah made the final cut along with Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Virgil van Dijk. The 27-year-old had an incredible year with Liverpool as Salah won the UEFA Champions League title in June following a 2-0 victory over Tottenham. Two months later, a win over Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup added another trophy to Salah’s outstanding season. The former Roma man was also close to winning the Premier League with Liverpool, but the Reds ended their league campaign a point short of rivals Manchester City, who won the title with a tally of 98 points. Despite missing out on the Premier League title, Salah still managed to claim the Premier League Golden Boot award for the second consecutive season. It’s worth noting that Salah was also nominated for the 2019 Ballon d’Or award recently, but the winger finished fifth in the rankings as Lionel Messi claimed the award earlier this month. Since joining Liverpool from Roma in 2017, Salah has made a total of 126 appearances for Liverpool, scoring 84 goals and assisting another 35 in all competitions.Tags: Cristiano RonaldoGlobe AwardGlobe Soccer AwardMohamed SalahUEFA Champions Leaguelast_img read more

  • UKGC launches consultation on society lottery reform

    first_imgShare Winning Post: A tale of three reports for UK betting July 6, 2020 Related Articles maintains momentum against COVID-19 impacts August 19, 2020 Submit StumbleUpon Winning Post: Political flip-floppery leads to uncertainty for casinos August 3, 2020 Share The UK Gambling Commission has launched a new public consultation which will consider the current regulatory requirements in place for society lotteries to ensure that issues related to the fair and open licensing objective, regarding transparency to consumers, are addressed.The consultation, which was launched on 19 December and will run until 12 March 2020, will make proposals to strengthen the licence conditions and codes of practice (LCCP).It is hoped that this will ensure lotteries ‘continue to be run in a fair and open manner, including that consumers have all the information they require to make informed decisions before deciding to gamble.’Section 99 of the Gambling Act 2005 requires the UKGC to assign a number of conditions to lottery operating licences issued to non-commercial societies or local authorities.The commission explained: “These conditions include the monetary or percentage limits on proceeds (ticket sales) and prizes in lotteries run by such societies or by local authorities. Section 99(11) of the Act permits the Secretary of State to vary by Order a monetary amount or percentage set out in section 99.“Section 99(10) of the Act permits the Commission to set similar, or alternatively more onerous, conditions on a lottery operating licence.“This means that the Order (if implemented) will make changes to the limits in legislation. However, until those changes are reflected in the licence conditions attached to society lottery operating licences, operators will not be able to benefit from them. To make changes to the LCCP, the Commission is required to consult those affected.”In its statement, the UKGC also highlighted a number of concerns regarding ‘the lack of transparency in relation to odds of winning a prize, how much of the money raised through ticket sales goes to good causes and which good causes are supported.’last_img read more

I am saying now she will probably make the WTA Finals and a Grand Slam, maybe.  “With a good draw, some luck and with what she has shown last week, you don’t want to put too much expectation on her, but she was not expected to win Indian Wells and look what happened.”A Grand Slam might be next year, but you just don’t know. She has incredible determination and drive. She will stay grounded, there will be no issue with that and she can achieve so much.” Bianca Andreescu visualized unlikely Indian Wells win: ‘A Cinderella story’ Bianca Andreescu’s former coach Andre Labelle says the teenage sensation can win a Grand Slam this year after her astonishing Indian Wells Open triumph.Andreescu made history on Sunday by beating three-time major champion Angelique Kerber 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 to become the first wild card to win the prestigious title in California.
