The operator will launch content broadcast from Evolution’s US live casino production studio, which opened in Atlantic City in August. The companies have worked together for a number of years in markets across Europe. Cristiano Blanco, head of gaming at Kindred Group, said Unibet sees live casino as an important vertical for its growth across the US.“The Unibet brand has a strong footprint in Europe where it has enjoyed exciting growth in live casino, thanks in large part to our relationship with Evolution,” he said. “Now that Evolution has launched its US studio, we look forward very much to establishing and growing the Unibet brand in New Jersey and, in due course, in other US states too.”Evolution is in a strong position in the US live casino market, last month following up the opening of its new studio by agreeing a deal to acquire rival Ezugi. The company only opened its US facility in the summer of this year, but James Stern, Evolution director of business development and land-based sales, said plans are already in place to expand the site, due to early levels of demand. “With additional partners still to go live and the wide range of games Evolution has to offer, the coming 12 months will undoubtedly highlight the company’s ability to provide the best player experience,” Stern said. The Evolution deal forms part of Kindred’s wider growth plans in the US, after the company last week set out plans to launch in New Jersey’s regulated sports betting market in the first quarter of 2019. Kindred has amended its contract with Kambi, its former subsidiary and long-term sportsbook platform provider, to cover New Jersey. The company has also partnered Scientific Games’ SG Digital division ahead of its move into the US, with the supplier to power its online casino offering.Image: Santeri Viinamäki Live casino content supplier expands existing partnership with Kindred brand to support NJ launch 12th December 2018 | By contenteditor Email Addresslast_img read more

What hasn’t been said about Ocado (LSE: OCDO) shares? For those lucky enough to buy the online supermarket’s shares a year ago, they would have seen an 85% rise, two years ago a 99% rise and three years ago 282% from today’s price (at the time of writing) to 2,078p.Ocado’s trajectory shows no sign of abating, although the online supermarket’s shares experienced a slight wobble in February this year – a fall of around 25% compared to its current share price. In a recent report by retail consultancy Kantar, take-home grocery sales rose by 12.5% in the 12 weeks to 21 February.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Fraser McKevitt, head of retail and consumer insight at Kantar, said: “The pandemic has now been making its mark on our lives and completely changing the way we shop for a full year.“Various hospitality restrictions mean that we’ve eaten an extra 7bn meals at home since spring 2020. Office tea rounds were replaced by brews in our own kitchens, and we drank an additional 2bn cups of tea in the house this year.“Overall, shoppers have spent £15.2bn more on groceries during the pandemic – around £4,800 per household on average, an increase of £500 compared with normal times.”Kantar added that Ocado had seen sales growth of 35.3% in the latest 12 weeks, easing its market share up to 1.7%.Should I buy Ocado shares?Ocado’s shares could be viewed as pricey, nearing the 2,100p mark, but the online grocery still looks attractive – 50% of its retail business is now owned by M&S. Sales are booming thanks to lockdown (if there are any silver linings?) and Kantar predicts that a proportion of first-time online delivery shoppers are likely to stick with this for the long term.Let’s look at Ocado’s recent full-year results from February. Revenue of £2.2bn was just over 35% higher than last year, despite higher costs including pandemic-related expenses. Cash profits more than doubled to £148.5m.For 2021, Ocado expects double digit percentage revenue growth in UK Solutions & Logistics, and invoiced fees for International Solutions fees to rise 30%.All very positive.On the one hand, some analysts believe Ocado’s shares will rise. Berenberg has reiterated its “buy” stance with a target price of 2,925p. However, Barclays has recently reiterated its “underweight” stance as it said it was disappointed and surprised that “2020 did not see any new deals inked”.The bank noted that Ocado’s £20bn valuation depends on it building a steadily bigger pipeline of Customer Fulfilment Centre orders. Although the early evidence is that its first international facilities are working well and will generate follow-on orders, Ocado will likely need to attract new grocery customers to justify the valuation, it said. The bank has a 1,600p price target for Ocado’s shares.The jury is out.However, with the pandemic boosting the online grocery market, not temporarily, and the might of M&S behind Ocado, I’m a happy holder of the shares in my SIPP. What’s more, the online supermarket has even reassured investors about its post-Brexit supply chain, which is music to my ears! See all posts by Sabuhi Gardlast_img read more

El “bravo comandante” y veterano de mil batallas locales, adoptó una posición de dolor y temor al orar por “una extensión de su vida”. Con lágrimas en los ojos y el seño fruncido mostrando dolor, el comandante oró a Dios y pidió que su vida no se termine pronto como han pronosticado sus médicos más allegados. “Dame vida aunque sea vida flameante, vida dolorosa, no me importa, dame tu corona Cristo, dámela, que yo sangro. Dame tu cruz, 100 cruces, que yo la llevo, pero dame vida porque todavía me quedan cosas por hacer por este pueblo”, dijo un acongojado y lloroso Chávez de 57 años.Una rápida encuesta posterior arrojó pesimismo en cuanto a su futuro. Algunos piensan que el presidente puede estar fingiendo su dolor con fines políticos, pero muchos otros creen que su sintomatología ha sido exagerada y que pronto recuperará la salud.

What makes Christmas movies so popular

first_img Please enter your name here The Anatomy of Fear Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Christmas 2019By S. Brent Rodriguez-Plate, Hamilton CollegeIf you are one of those people who will settle in this evening with a hot cup of apple cider to watch a holiday movie, you are not alone. Holiday movies have become firmly embedded in Americans’ winter celebrations.The New York Times reports a massive increase in new holiday movies this year. Disney, Netflix, Lifetime and Hallmark are now in direct competition for viewers’ attention, with both new releases and reruns of the classics.Holiday movies are so popular not simply because they are “escapes,” as my research on the relation between religion and cinema argues. Rather, these films offer viewers a glimpse into the world as it is could be.Christmas movies as a reflectionThis is particularly true with Christmas movies.In his 2016 book “Christmas as Religion,” the religious studies scholar Christopher Deacy states that Christmas movies act as a “barometer of how we might want to live and how we might see and measure ourselves.”These movies offer a variety of portraits of everyday life while affirming ethical values and social mores along the way.The 1946 classic “It’s a Wonderful Life” – about a man who longs to travel but remains stuck in his childhood town – represent visions of a community in which every citizen is a vital component.Another movie commonly replayed this time of year is 2005’s “The Family Stone” which portrays the clashes of a mostly average family but shows viewers that quarrels can be worked through and harmony is possible.The 2003 British holiday film “Love Actually,” which follows the lives of eight couples in London, brings to viewers the perennial theme of romance and the trials of relationships.Holiday films create alternate realities that provide us solace.DGLimages/ShutterstockMovie watching as a ritual practiceAs holiday movies bring viewers into a fictional world, people are able to work through their own fears and desires about self-worth and relationships. Such movies can provide solace, reaffirmation and sometimes even courage to continue working through difficult situations. The movies offer hope in believing it all might turn out alright in the end.When people see some part of their own lives unfold on screen, the act of viewing operates in a fashion that’s strikingly similar to how a religious ritual works.As anthropologist Bobby Alexander explains, rituals are actions that transform people’s everyday lives. Rituals can open up “ordinary life to an ultimate reality or some transcendent being or force,” he writes in the collection “Anthropology of Religion.”For example, for Jews and Christians, ritually observing the Sabbath day by sharing meals with family and not working connects them with the creation of the world. Prayer rituals in the Muslim, Christian and Jewish traditions connect those praying with their God, as well as with their fellow believers.Holiday movies do something similar, except that the “transcendent force” they make viewers feel is not about God or another supreme being. Instead, this force is more secular: It’s the power of family, true love, the meaning of home or the reconciliation of relationships.Movies create an idealized worldTake the case of the 1942 musical “Holiday Inn.” It was one of the first movies – after the silent era’s various versions of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” – where the plot used Christmas as a backdrop, telling the story of a group of entertainers who have gathered at a country inn.In reality, it was a deeply secular film about romantic interests, couched in a desire to sing and dance. When it was released, the United States had been fully involved in the World War II for a year and national spirits were not high.A still from the film, ‘White Christmas.Classic Film/Flickr, CC BY-NCThe movie hasn’t endured as a classic. But Bing Crosby’s song “White Christmas,” which appeared in it, quickly became etched in the holiday consciousness of many Americans, and a 1954 film called “White Christmas” became better known.As historian Penne Restad puts it in her 1995 book “Christmas in America,” Crosby’s crooning offers the “quintessential expression” of the holidays, a world which “has no dark side” – one in which “war is forgotten.”In subsequent Christmas movies, the main plots have not been set in the context of war, yet there is nonetheless often a battle: that of overcoming a materialistic, gift-buying and gift-giving kind of holiday.Movies like “Jingle all the Way,” “Deck the Halls” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” center around the idea that the true meaning of Christmas is not in rampant consumerism but in goodwill and family love.Dr. Seuss’s famously grouchy Grinch thinks he can ruin Christmas by taking all the gifts away. But as the people gather together, giftless, they join hands and sing while the narrator tells viewers, “Christmas came anyway.”A scene from the 1966 TV movie “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!”“All’s right with the world”Though Christmas is a Christian holiday, most holiday films are not religious in the traditional sense. There is hardly ever a mention of Jesus or the biblical setting of his birth.As media studies scholar John Mundy writes in a 2008 essay, “Christmas and the Movies,” “Hollywood movies continue to construct Christmas as an alternative reality.”These movies create on-screen worlds that kindle positive emotions while offering a few laughs.“A Christmas Story,” from 1983, waxes nostalgic for childhood holidays when life seemed simpler and the desire for a Red Ryder air rifle was the most important thing in the world. The plot of 2003’s “Elf” centers on the quest to reunite with a lost father.In the end, as the narrator says late in “A Christmas Story” – after the family has overcome a serious of risible mishaps, the presents have been unwrapped and they’ve gathered for Christmas goose – these are times when “all’s right with the world.”S.

Last season, the Frogs lost to Arizona in Tucson in heartbreaking fashion, 2-1.The Big 12’s third-place team is confident in their ability to win under the lights of Garvey-Rosenthal, posting a 7-1-2 record in front of their home crowd this season.“We will need a home-field advantage,” Bell said. “BYU is a good team and they’ll be a worthy opponent. Having home field advantage will get us over the edge.”First-year forwards Messiah Bright and Maddy Warren have contributed heavily to the team’s offensive production this season. Bright, the Co-Big 12 Freshman of the Year, has recorded five goals and 11 points on the season and Warren is tied with senior forward Kayla Hill for the team lead in goals with six.

Contempts not punishable in certain cases.—Notwithstanding anything contained in any law for the time being in force,— (a) no court shall impose a sentence under this Act for a contempt of court unless it is satisfied that the contempt is of such a nature that it substantially interferes, or tends substantially to interfere with the due course of justice; (b) the court may permit, in any proceeding for contempt of court, justification by truth as a valid defence if it is satisfied that it is in public interest and the request for invoking the said defence is bona fide.”It is not enough that there should be some technical contempt. It must be shown that the act of contempt must “substantially interfere with the administration of justice. It is not enough for the court to say that the remarks as scurrilous and all. The Court has to state that the comments have “substantially interfered with the administration justice.As some commentator has said, how can a comment about CJI seated on a bike affect the administration of justice”, Dhavan submitted before a bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra, BR Gavai and Krishna Murari.He submitted that the August 14 judgment pronouncing Bhushan guilty of contempt of court did not state how his tweets “substantially interfered with the administration of justice”.Next, he referred to Section 13(2) of the Contempt of Courts Act to state that ‘truth was a defence’.He stressed that Bhushan had given elaborate justifications for his tweets in his 400-odd page reply affidavit. However, the bench did not consider the reply affidavit in it verdict, he said.At his juncture, Justice  Gavai replied that Dushyant Dave (who had appeared for Bhushan in the contempt case) only referred to the earlier part of the affidavit, which was considered in the judgment and did not rely on the other parts of the affidavit.”Dave had only taken us to page 40 of the affidavit and did not refer to the other parts”, Justice Gavai said.In response, Dhavan clarified what Dave said was that it would be embarrassing to read the other portions of the affidavit.Dhavan says that what Dave said was that it would be embarrassing to read the other portions of the affidavit.#Bhushan #prashanthbhushan #contemptofcourt#SupremeCourt— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 20, 2020As Dhavan started to refer to the averments in the reply affidavit, Justice Mishra told him ,”Dr. Dhavan why you are entering into all this? I request you. Think over. If you invite us to read all this, we will have to decide all this. We will have to decide if it is a defence or an aggravation. You might be thinking it is a defence”.Justice Mishra also requested not “to take names”, when Dhavan started reading out portions from the affidavit with respect to his tweet dealing with four CJIs,Dhavan said that two factors were relevant while considering the sentence :1. Nature of the comments- there are already public discussions about the working of judiciary in recent times.2. Nature of the person.Dhavan referred to several cases of public interest fought by Prashant Bhushan such as coal scam case, Orissa mining cases, police reforms cases, powers of CVC/CBI, anti-corruption cases, 2G cases, RTI cases.Justice Mishra said “we are quite impressed by the list( of cases fought by Bhushan pro bono)”. This will weigh in your favour (with respect to sentencing)”Dhavan also emphasized that the views of Bhushan were “echoed and supported” by several prominent public personalities including retired judges and asked “are they in contempt also?”While concluding the hearing on the sentence today, the Court also said it will grant two-three days time to Prashant Bhushan to “reconsider” the statement made by him before the Court today, justifying his tweets.”My tweets were nothing but a small attempt to discharge what I considered to be my highest duty at this juncture in the history of our republic. I did not tweet in a fit of absence mindedness. It would be insincere and contemptuous on my part to offer an apology for the tweets that expressed what was and continues to be my bonafide belief. Therefore, I can only humbly paraphrase what the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi had said in his trial: I do not ask for mercy. I do not appeal to magnanimity. I am here, therefore, to cheerfully submit to any penalty that can lawfully be inflicted upon me for what the Court has determined to be an offence, and what appears to me to be the highest duty of a citizen”, he said.I believe that open criticism is necessary in any democracy to safeguard the constitutional order. Saving the constitutional order should come about personal or professional interests. My tweets were a small attempt to discharge what I consider my highest duty : Bhushan— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 20, 2020The bench was not appreciative of the statement and asked Bhushan if he would like to reconsider it. The bench also asked Attorney General about granting time to Bhushan to reconsider the statement. AG agreed that time can be given to him.However, Bhushan stood by the statement and said that it was “well considered and well thought of”. He said that granting time “will not serve any purpose” as “it was unlikely” that he will change it.Nevertheless, the bench said that it will give him two or three days for him to reconsider the statement. Justice Mishra remarked that the Court will have to consider if Bhushan’s statement was “a defence or an aggravation”.  At the beginning of the hearing, the bench dismissed the application moved by Bhushan seeking to defer the hearing on the ground that he intended to file review.”Sentence hearing is consequential to the conviction. Both can be reviewed, right?Can you say that consequential order cannot be passed? Judgment will be complete when it is totally pronounced”, Justice Mishra told Dushyant Dave, who appeared in the application.”In the event we impose any punishment, we assure you that it will not be activated until the review is decided’, Justice Mishra assured.Attorney General for India, K K Venugopal, requested the bench to not punish Bhushan.Complete updates from the hearing may be read here.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
