first_img The head of product and partnerships at Bayes Esports Solutions, the joint venture between Sportradar and Bayes Holding discusses the potential for growth in esports betting to be sustained after the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Email Address The head of product and partnerships at Bayes Esports Solutions, the joint venture between Sportradar and Bayes Holding discusses the potential for growth in esports betting to be sustained after the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.Have you seen a spike in esports betting during the suspension of traditional sports? Can these numbers be sustained once these sports return? We’re definitely seeing a spike and increased demand from operators who want to offer esports betting markets to their customers. 
In terms of the impact that the return of traditional sports will have, it will be minimal. Generally, I don’t believe that a lot of traditional sports fans are replacing their love of traditional sports with esports. Rather, the majority are replacing live sports with old games and highlights.The people that have flocked to esports have done so because they are at home with more time on their hands, and they’re looking for something new to consume. So when traditional sports return, we shouldn’t lose a lot of those fans we’ve attracted. The amount of time people are able to dedicate to playing and watching esports will decline, but the interest in esports will persist once traditional sports resume.When it comes to betting, how far off is esports from competiting with traditional sports? Currently, I see esports betting separately from traditional sports betting. With the bigger, traditional sports, there are large existing communities of fans for teams and players. That simply doesn’t exist for esports at the same scale, and that carries over to betting as well because people tend to bet on things they know. However, I do think that as esports continues to grow in cultural relevance and a few more stars emerge, it will truly rival traditional sports betting.What sort of challenges does compiling data for esports betting throw up? How does this compare to a sport such as football, for example? Accurate data is everything when it comes to betting, no matter the sport or event. For esports, speed of data is another key factor in separating from the pack, but if you have fast data that’s not accurate, it’s essentially worthless.The data for the esports betting sector must be reliable and accurate, rich in its depth and has a speedy delivery. Richness of data can be defined by depth and granularity. If you look at a sport like soccer, there’s up to 15 data points that matter, sometimes you can gather a bit more. Wheras with League of Legends, for example, there’s at least 25 data points per player and there’s 10 players playing at once. So there are a lot more things happening in the game. For esports there needs to be a technical solution to effectively collect, extract and monetise all of that data. Data consumers want data with a high level of detail for all events and games preferably from a single source.In addition, exclusive contracts between service providers and right holders make broad distribution and standardisation difficult. For example, betting and media companies often only have access to the data of individual organisers or tournaments which severely limits coverage. This precise intersection of complexity is why Bayes Esports Solutions has developed its data marketplace BEDEX.How granular can in-play esports betting be? Esports betting can get extremely granular, especially when you factor in-play betting into the equation. In general, esports players execute around 100 actions per minute, depending on the game, and every one of these actions is being recorded. The games record things at incredible speeds. Each player is doing something every second of the game, so the amount of data that is being recorded over the course of an entire game is incredible. All of that data can be used to create unique betting markets, which is a huge opportunity for esports to deepen the level of fan engagement with its audience.Considering this level of detail, what are you doing to ensure you can offer operators as much data as possible? At this moment in time, esports is one of very few options to bet on from a live sports standpoint, so you can imagine the demand we’re seeing from operators. The main focus of Bayes Esports Solutions right now is continuing to ramp up coverage to fill the void left by traditional sports. With more people at home, there has been a significant increase in esports tournaments as well as consumption.We’re working extremely hard to offer as much data coverage as possible during this time, while making sure that the data we’re offering is fully vetted and researched. Due to the lack of live, in-person events, there are more unplanned online tournaments occurring, so we’re working around the clock to try and satisfy the demand from the operators. Besides, Bayes is looking to speed up negotiations and integrations, also offering a fast track for new clients.The action appears to be concentrated around a trio of titles in CS:GO, Dota 2 and League of Legends. Is there likely to be a shift in which other titles build this same kind of audience? Esports is a sub-culture of the video game industry. If you look at the history of video games, the market crashed in 1983 and destroyed a lot of hope for the future. Now it is the biggest entertainment industry on earth, bigger than the box office and music combined.We see a future where new and exciting video games create their own esports culture and we see dozens of games which have an esports scene the size of Counter-Strike, Dota and League of Legends are now. Video games are fundamentally fluid and ever changing, I see no reason to think that esports will be any different, so we are building to be equally flexible.

first_img Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Cricket Cricket CricketBCCIIndian premier leagueIndian Premier League 2021Latest Sports News BCCI President Sourav Ganguly lists down 5 big reasons including IPL why Virat Kohli led Indian Team is best in business currently Sourav Ganguly on why Team India is best in business: The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) authority has been extended tremendously in the last few years, becoming the most powerful cricket board in the world. However, it is not just down to administrative efficiency. The biggest reason is Virat Kohli & Co’s excellent performance on the pitch. Gone are those days when Team India was called the home track bully. Under Virat Kohli’s captaincy, India have become a strong side even in overseas condition, defeating Australia twice in their own backyard and bullying World No 1 England at home, winning all three series. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said that it is down to 5 reasons including IPL why the Indian Team is the best in business and achieved what the team could not under his captaincy.“The system is strong – domestic cricket, NCA (National Cricket Academy), coaches. The IPL is also a reason. Fairness of selection; only the best gets picked. There is transparency. The cricket system is robust. Four-day and T20 (cricket) are different, but the IPL does help. Gives confidence that you can play at this level. Talent is important and adjustment is not a problem,” Sourav Ganguly told The Hindu.

The Ranji Trophy continues to churn out players like Mohammed Siraj, Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul, who play for the state teams against equally strong oppositions like Cheteshwar Pujara’s Saurashtra or Ajinkya Rahane’s Mumbai.2) NCA (National Cricket Academy): Over the last decade, the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru has grown tremendously. Working hand-in-hand with the MRF Pace Academy, the NCA has churned out pacers like Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj, Khaleel Ahmed and others. Currently, under the tutelage of Rahul Dravid, it is likely to grow more in the coming days.Also Read: IPL 2021: BCCI Prez Sourav Ganguly big statement, ‘remainder of IPL cannot happen in India’BCCI President Sourav Ganguly lists down 5 big reasons why Indian Team is best in business3) Top Class coaches: Not just the senior men’s team coach but at every age-group level, BCCI has employed coaches who are world-class. If Rahul Dravid had overseen the India A and U-19 team, coaches like Bharat Arun, WV Raman, Ravi Shastri have nurtured young talents. At the grassroots, there are several former First-Class and international cricketers who are nurturing budding talents while at state levels, they get the guidance of international coaches like Dav Wahtamore (Kerala coach).4) IPL also a big reason: Probably the biggest reason of it all is the Indian Premier League (IPL). Since its launch in 2008, it has become the trademark of BCCI’s success and a primary reason for India’s deep pool of talent. As the scouts from IPL franchises track the performance of cricketers in domestic games, players are eager to showcase their talent and earn fat cheques from the IPL auction.Cricketers like Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah and now Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan have all come through the IPL. In their respective franchises, they are guided by international coaches and former international stars as mentors to correct their mistakes. It has helped immensely, taking the fear factor out of cricketers like Suryakumar Yadav.Also Read: ICC WTC Final: Snubbed by IPL 2021, Abhimanyu Easwaran ready for Southampton-bound challengeBCCI President Sourav Ganguly lists down 5 big reasons why Indian Team is best in business5) Indian cricketers very talented: There is no doubt that India has a great talent pool. Playing two bilateral series simultaneously is one prime example. The team that will go to England to play Test and the one that will go to Sri Lanka will not have a great difference in talent. With cricket culture being a reason and stardom being the other, youngsters give their best to learn the nitty-gritty of the game and compete at the highest level.“These are two different generations. This is a superb phase. We drew with Australia in Australia, beat England in England and Pakistan in Pakistan. Won in New Zealand, too. It was a glorious phase. This team is doing so well. I leave it at that. What happened in 2003, can’t be compared with 2021. I was involved both times – captain and now the BCCI president,” Sourav Ganguly concluded.For more sports updates, follow us at insidesport.co and Moneyball for IPL players’ salaries.

Mable, not her real name, is quite withdrawn.  It is obvious that she is unhappy, but then I realized why.  The other ladies, including my wife, pick on her relentlessly.  One might say that this is a nursing home and because it is occupied with the elderly suffering from all sort of maladies, including Dementia, weird behavior could be expected, but as Christians this is not right.Loneliness and isolation are killers.  They break the human spirit.  Let it never be said that we contribute to the diminishing of another soul.    And while I am on the subject of bullying, gossip is nothing less than murder for it is character assassination.  Our purpose in life should be to relieve suffering not add to it,   Our purpose should be to spread love, not hate. inclusivity, not exclusivity.  Mercy, not cruelty.  Let it be said of us that we are Christ-like in all things, that the world is a better place because we were here.Live wholly,Love fully,Love God, and make a difference, today Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. charles towne LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply July 30, 2017 at 10:36 am Reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Linda Liphamlast_img read more


first_img From the Orange County Newsroom It’s not uncommon for Apopka residents Steven and Jennifer Hamilton to have their trash become a buffet for bears in their neighborhood. Bears’ noses are more sensitive than a bloodhound and they are frequently drawn to curbside garbage.“Our trash is torn up by bears at least once per month,” Jennifer Hamilton said. “We understand that we share the habitat with bears and want to encourage them to stay in the nature preserve area and to eat healthy plants and berries … not unhealthy garbage.”That is why the Hamiltons, along with other northern Apopka residents, have ordered bear-resistant roll carts. A little more than 10,000 households in Northwest unincorporated Orange County are in the Bear Management Area. Those residents are now offered bear-resistant roll carts for $50.The 95-gallon bear roll-carts have a special gravity lock mechanism that makes them work seamlessly with automated trash pickup. Residents who have these bear carts do not incur any additional solid waste fees.The roll carts were recently dropped off to some of the residents by Orange County District 2 Commissioner Bryan Nelson and County Utilities staff. They also provided hands-on demonstrations on how the roll cart works.“Orange County Government was delighted to be the recipient of a $200,000 matching grant program from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and we are providing a $25,000 match,” Commissioner Nelson said. “Right now, we have ordered 910 carts and about 110 residents have expressed interest in using them. Bear carts are good for the bears and good for people. I hope that more Apopka residents take advantage of this opportunity.”Bear-resistant roll carts are pricey – each one costs $245. However, residents only have to pay $50 for a reduced service fee thanks to the grant.  Also, the carts are not “owned” by residents – they are property of Orange County to be used by the property owner.“Only Orange County Solid Waste residential customers in the Bear Management Area are eligible for a bear-resistant roll cart,” said Allan Cole, Orange County Utilities Supervisor. “However, we encourage all residents to be ‘bear aware’ and not leave pet food on the back porch, know that bird feeders can attract bears and bring garbage out to the curb in the early morning – not at night.”Purchasing the bear-resistant roll carts is voluntary. Homeowners can choose to keep their existing roll carts secure (in the garage as an example) and place them at the curb between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. the day of pickup – not overnight when bears typically seek food.For information, including an online application and to see if you reside in the Bear Management area, visit www.ocfl.net/BearCarts, or call 407-836-6601 or email [email protected] Photo: District 2 Commissioner Bryan Nelson shows 10-year-old Apopka resident Aidan Evelyn how to use the bear-resistant roll cart.

first_img Howard Lake | 20 October 2009 | News Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Ireland recession Research / statistics Barnardos Ireland’s fundraising “down 20%” The charity has a funding shortfall of €1,180,000 for this year and is well short of the €5.9 million it needs to keep services going.Barnardos last week launched a public appeal fronted by the charity’s chief executive using radio and newspaper inserts.Director of marketing and fundraising Ruth Guy said if the budget deficit continued into next year it would then have to look at curtailing or cutting projects as “a worst case scenario”.A 3% reduction in HSE funding has already been agreed, meaning a drop in the 67% of statutory funding already provided to Barnardos. A pay freeze is already in place for the charity’s 360 full-time staff. As for the possible closure of projects, she said: “It is going to be largely dependent on the funding that we are getting in.”Last year Barnardos had an income of €24.386 million, compared to €21.589 million in 2007.
