Regions: US Colorado Indiana New Jersey TheScore has seen revenue fall 71.8% year-on-year in the three months to May 31, in a period which chief executive John Levy described as an “unprecedented challenge” for the Canadian media and betting business.With the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis leading to the suspension of sporting events around the world, revenue for the three months to May 31 declined to CAD$2.4m.This came entirely from media activities, compared to $8.5m for Q3 2019. Of this sum, $1.1m of the total came from theScore’s native Canada, with a further $1.3m coming from other markets, predominantly the US.Despite the disruption to the sporting calendar caused by Covid-19, monthly active users on iOS and Android came in at 2.9m, representing around 75% of the average monthly actives in Q3 2019.This, theScore explained, was down to a lack of live sports, which drive engagement with the app. However, the total average monthly user sessions on its app came in at 100m, or 35 sessions per-user per-month.For its sportsbook offering, theScore Bet, handle amounted to $3.5m, down from $13.8m for the three months to 29 February. From these stakes, theScore generated gross gaming revenue of $0.1m, though after promotional costs and fair value adjustments of unsettled bets, it posted a loss of $22,000 for the quarter.“The past quarter has been a period of unprecedented challenge, as the world grappled with the vast impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, including the disruption of nearly every major sports league and event,” theScore’s founder and chief executive John Levy (pictured) said.Read the full story on iGB North America.

She was in attendance at one of the council meetings, and stood up there, and said the school could have the wiring put in for the “Welcome to Apopka” sign, when the workers were re-doing the school during construction. I even asked her about the sign later, when I saw her, and she said it was in the budget. So where is the sign? Dale, what happened to the Apopka Voice article search bar?

Mama Mia – top right there is a search bar. Mama Mia Reply Matthew J. Fitzpatrick recently announced he would be a candidate for Orange County School Board District 7.Fitzpatrick provided The Apopka Voice with this statement:Matthew J. Fitzpatrick“I originally went into education because I wanted to help students during the formative years of their lives. I went into administration because I figured I could help even more students by helping their teachers find success in their classrooms. I am now seeking the District 7 seat on the Orange County School Board because I believe I have the heart, the message, and the experience that can help even more students, teachers, and schools find success all across our school district. I’ve been in education for 23 years—12 as a teacher, and 11 as an administrator. I’ve been a teacher and administrator at Apopka Memorial MS, Ocoee HS, Boone HS, Apopka HS, and now Orange Technical College – Westside Campus in Winter Garden. I’ve also served for two years as the District Athletic Director over athletics and extracurricular activities at all High Schools, Middle Schools, and Elementary Schools.”“I firmly believe that it takes great teachers to make great schools. Great teachers change the lives of their students for the better. Without a doubt, as I have worked all around our county, I have come in contact with some of the best teachers that Orange County has to offer. As I talk to these great teachers, all of them lament our current teacher evaluation system that only recognized 2.4% of Orange County teachers as highly effective this past year. We can do better. We must cast aside the micromanaging methods of the Marzano Teacher Evaluation system and set our teachers free to share their passion and expertise with all of their students…doing so in a safe, academically inspiring environment that truly prepares them for their future. We must resist the shallow focus on high-stakes testing and rediscover the powerful skills of creativity, curiosity, and critical thinking. Great teachers can take our students to those higher places in education. We must take care of our teachers…especially the great ones…they are the ones who take care of our students.”Voters can meet Fitzpatrick at the CPS SportsPlex on Wednesday, May 18, from 5-7 PM. Great provof that Christine Moore needs to be voted out is that at last nights orange county public school super scholar event there was only one student from District seven. To me it shows that Christine Moore is not inspiring the administrators, the teachers and the students to reach higher academic goals. And on top of that she spent the entire first part of the presentation surfing on her phone and then left after the one student was announced who happened to be the second student announced. She did not stay for the reception after the awards ceremony for the meet and greet with the parents. To her orange county super scholars are unimportant. This shows that she is not the person to lead our students into a brighter future May 19, 2016 at 11:12 am Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply I wonder why the sign that is posted on the school grounds that proclaims our half-cent sales tax is at work, regarding the schools, did not pay for the upgraded fencing at Dream Lake School? This according to Christine Moore’s own words on her posting where she states that the upgraded fencing at the Dream Lake School, that I said looked nice, was due to the generosity of the City of Apopka. My, oh my?????……..was not that sort of needed projects, the purpose of collecting the half-cent sales tax?

The penthouse will be one of 31 expansive residences offered in the limestone-clad building which, according to the a recent press release, will be “evocative of the great New York apartment buildings of the 1920’s and 1930’s.” Developers William and Arthur Zeckendorf gained approval for the 51-story skyscraper by purchasing $30.4 million in air rights from the neighboring Christ Church.

The solid parts of this plinth are conceived in a dark tone that suppresses this level and provides a shadow in which the rest of the building is supported, giving lightness to the main volume.Save this picture!© Antoine Huot, Takiju ShimmuraSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Antoine Huot, Takiju ShimmuraEach facade was carefully thought out, and they provide two different ways of approaching the public space. On one hand, one is conceived as a game of subtractions as you level up, producing generous outdoor spaces for the upper-story apartments. On the contrary, the other is thought of as a smooth element that is randomly interrupted by the different glazed openings. These two ways of facing the street, fit harmoniously into a single coherent body thanks to the mono materiality of the volume.Save this picture!© Antoine Huot, Takiju ShimmuraThe use of raw concrete has been chosen for being a unifying element – sober and elegant -, for its robust and durable quality, as well as for its structural advantage when creating outdoor spaces that are a real attraction and that favor a long-term qualitative use. The polished finish, very similar to metal, was achieved through the use of a very smooth metal formwork and a light gray tint which is finished with a satin clear coat.Save this picture!© Antoine Huot, Takiju ShimmuraProject gallerySee allShow lessOpen Call: The Global Challenge 2021 | Architecture-in-DevelopmentBuilt Projects & MasterplansNeurodiversity and Biophilia: the Future of the Workspace in the Post-Pandemic EraArticlesProject locationAddress:93100 Montreuil, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. 1) The ‘rituals’ of fundraising eventsMalene FregilFull-time research student, Plymouth UniversityConsulting partner, Ingerfair, Norway and DenmarkMalene will explore the various types of rituals involved in fundraising events, how they are currently practiced, what might be the national/local differences in such events and how additional value may be created for supporters.2) How digital fundraising can co-create social meaningSophie KongFull-time research student, Plymouth UniversitySophie will examine which are the optimal forms of engagement in the digital environment that might foster giving. She will look at how fundraising rituals may emerge in the digital space as a method of social-meaning co-creation, and the role of communal-oriented online communities.Plymouth University’s Development and Alumni Relations Office are helping make this possible by supporting Sophie through a Santander Scholarship.3) The psychology behind solicitors’ attitudes to charitable bequestsLucy LowthianFundraising manager, York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation TrustLucy will explore how the interaction between solicitors and their clients may, or may not, enhance the legacy giving experience for donors.The study should help develop an evidence-based syllabus for legacy giving training for solicitors.She will study which psychological factors, in addition to social norms, could be used to make solicitors more comfortable in initiating conversations with their clients about leaving a charitable bequest. She will also look at how far such conversations can influence donors’ legacy giving choices.4) What drives public attitudes to charitable giving and fundraising?Ian MacQuillinManager, Rogare – The Fundraising Think Tank, Plymouth UniversityIan is studying the applied ethics of fundraising. He wants to find out how individuals form, express and change their fundamental views about what charitable giving is about, and what it ‘should’ be about. He will study how this shapes their attitudes about the practice of fundraising in its various forms.In particular he will look at how the charitable sector might influence these perceptions to create an environment that is more favorable to sustainable philanthropy.5) The role that multiple identities play in the decision to leave a charitable bequestChristine PunterFormer legacy promotions manager, NSPCCChristine will be exploring how Irish people cultivate legacy giving within their national context. She will look at how Irish people manage multiple identities through their life span and how this identity maturation and life adaptation influences their legacy giving decisions.She will also look at moral identity, Catholic identify, and rural/urban identity and how these might mediate in choosing to leave a legacy.This will be the first research to explore the  contribution that philanthropic psychology might make to the profession of legacy fundraising in Ireland and beyond.6) How asking for major gifts affects fundraisers’ ‘moral maturation’Jessica SilyeFundraising manager, Royal Cornwall Hospital NHS TrustJessica will study “how major gift fundraisers’ moral maturation (moral identity, complexity and metacognitive ability) and moral conation (moral courage, efficacy and ownership) might influence the quality of major donors’ giving experience (satisfaction, commitment, trust, moral maturation and moral conation)”.To do so she will explore “the mediating role of communal relationship building between major gift officers, major donors, and other key stakeholders”.Her findings should help the Centre better support fundraisers professionally through a greater understanding of how the act of fundraising impacts them on different levels. The first six PhD research projects to be undertaken at the Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy at the University of Plymouth have been announced. Two further projects are expected to be added early next year.The researchers, who include professional fundraisers, will tackle topics ranging from public attitudes to giving and fundraising, through rituals in fundraising events to the psychology behind solicitors’ attitudes to charitable bequests.The Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy was launched in January 2014 by Professors Adrian Sargeant and Jen Shang. It is designed to provide philanthropists and fundraisers with the robust and reliable research information they need to build sustainable philanthropy. It explicitly focuses on research with practical applications, so it aims not just to measure philanthropy but also to grow it.Professor Jen Shang, director of research at the CSP, said she was delighted at the wide range of applicable doctoral research projects proposed to the Centre. She said:“This research will explore what happens at the interface of fundraising and philanthropy, establishing totally new fields of knowledge in areas such as attitude formation and fundraisers’ moral identity. They show that fundraising and philanthropy are two sides of the same coin, and there’s no sudden break between the two.”Plymouth’s first fundraising PhD projectsThese are the topics that the six researchers will be studying.

  • Frogs can add to homecoming success Saturday against Texas

    first_imgFacebook ReddIt Dean Straka Men’s tennis clinches consecutive Big 12 titles with win over No. 4 Baylor The Frogs defeated Texas 48-10 in last year’s matchup in Austin. Twitter TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello printOnly a day remains until TCU plays its annual homecoming game, this year pitting the Frogs against the University of Texas Longhorns.At a glance, the game may appear to be just another intra-conference game on the schedule for the Frogs. But the homecoming game always gives a different vibe for TCU, no matter the opponent.It is a celebration for the TCU community: A time for current students, alumni and players to come together and enjoy something so dear to all of them — Horned Frog football.For some fans, it may be their first TCU football game. For others, it may be their hundredth. But the sight of past, current and future Horned Frogs coming together is what makes the game so special.For the team, the game also has a different meaning. It is a chance for players to showcase their talent in front of one the largest and most diverse crowds of the season. If the Frogs come out with their “A” game, the atmosphere can be electric.The best part of all is that the Frogs have been dominant in the homecoming game in recent years. Of their last 11 homecoming games played, the team has won all but one.In 2014, the then No. 12 TCU squad beat then No. 15 Oklahoma State, routing the Cowboys 42-9 in a top-20 matchup.Blowouts like in 2014 have not been uncommon during the team’s stretch of homecoming success. In the 2011 homecoming game, the Frogs demolished New Mexico 69-0. The game in 2009 also featured a lopsided shut out with the Frogs defeating UNLV 41-0.The one homecoming loss the Frogs suffered in the stretch came back in 2012 at the hands of some familiar foes from West Texas who nearly upset the Frogs last week: the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The game was anything but a blowout, going into triple overtime. However, the Red Raiders outlasted the Frogs 56-53 in the high scoring affair.With Texas in town for this year’s homecoming, the Frogs have another chance to win in dominant fashion. The 1-3 Longhorns, plagued by untimely miscues and leadership instability, have not looked as strong as in past year.The team can also take confidence in the fact it embarrassed the Longhorns in their own backyard last year on Thanksgiving night, crushing Texas 48-10 at Darrell K. Royal Stadium in Austin, Texas.But at homecoming, nothing can be taken for granted. With emotions high on many levels as well as a No. 4 ranking for the Frogs, Texas has the incentive to give TCU its best shot on the playing field. As head coach Gary Patterson has preached all season long, it’s one game at a time.

Kennedy, Jean Kennedy Smith, has been remembered in County Limerick following her recent passing.The last of JFK’s siblings, Kennedy Smith died aged 92 on June 17 at her home in New York. The U.S. Ambassador to Ireland from 1993 to 1998, she played a pivotal role in forging the peace process in Northern Ireland where she was warmly received for her unorthodox diplomatic approach.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In October 1994, 15 months after she was appointed the United States Ambassador to Ireland, Ms Kennedy Smith took up an invite of late local historian Michael Quinlan to visit Lough Gur.Jean visited Lough Gur in recognition of the fact that her grandfather and JKF’s grandfather first came from Lough Gur and then moved to Bruff and onto America. During her visit to County Limerick she named the newly-refurbished Honey Fitz Theatre in honour of her grandfather who got his nickname due to his sweet sounding singing voice.In a letter to Mr Quinlan, inviting him to join her for Thanksgiving at her Phoenix Park residence following her visit to Limerick in 1994, she wrote: “One of the many things I am especially thankful for this year is the hospitality you extended to me when I visited your community.“My sister, Pat, and I so appreciated the hospitality you showed us during our visit to ‘Fitzgerald Country’. It meant very much to both Pat and me that the town of Lough Gur would honour Honey Fitz and our Fitzgerald side of the family in this way. I know that neither of us will forget your generosity and kindness.”Former chairman of Lough Gur Development, Tom Tierney, who attended that Thanksgiving dinner at the US Ambassador’s residence, remembers her Limerick visit with great fondness.“Jean Kennedy Smith’s visit in 1994 was a wonderful occasion and the achievement of a life long goal of Michael Quinlan to bring a Kennedy back to their ancestral roots in Lough Gur. It was a wonderful occasion which then resulted in a number of us attending the US Ambassador residence in Dublin for Thanksgiving that November where we sang the songs associated with JFK grandfather John Francis Fitzgerald aka “Honey Fitz” to the delight of the Ambassador,” Mr Tierney told the Limerick Post this week.
