On the Friday before the Wolves versus Liverpool match Sky Sports had a buzz score of -3.2. The initial story barely impacted on that with a drop to -5.6 on Monday but as the story gathered pace so did the decline in the Sky Sports buzz score and by Thursday it was as low as -47. The parent brand was also impacted with Sky dropping from -1 to -17. Both have started the recovery already with a pick-up at the end of last week continuing on Monday to see Sky Sports return to -30 and Sky to -8. Buzz tends to be a leader of general perceptions and Sky will hope that realising it had a problem and acting fast will mitigate the damage to its brand. The recovery in the buzz scores is positive news on that front as is the fact that despite the high levels of awareness of the bad publicity it had a very limited impact on overall perceptions and the decline was reversed before it had had time to gather pace. Sky Sports did drop on the overall index but much less dramatically, from +3 to -10 and is now back at -5 and Sky continued to fluctuate either side of the +5 line. Spontaneous TellYouGov comments reveal how tricky a problem this was for Sky. There was a clear split between those that believed the Grey/Keys comments were disgraceful and those who thought there had been an over-reaction. The next couple of weeks will be important for Sky, but early indications are that this was an effective piece of crisis management.Stephan Shakespeare is founder and chief executive of YouGov.

Best bookmaker for mobile apps

The criteria we analysed consisted of the following: Sky Bet Coming out as our overall number 1 pick, Sky Bet impressed us with its general app experience. It seems we’re not the only ones who admire the Sky Bet mobile experience, with customer ratings on both iOS and Android devices extremely high.Sky Bet ranked in overall third place in the sport category for Apple users, the highest of the bookmakers we researched for this article.There’s only one language available using the Sky Bet app, but this is the only category where this operator scored significantly lower than its competitors.Paddy Power Paddy Power is one of the most well-known bookmakers around. From its irreverent humour in its advertisements to its unique bonus opportunities, Paddy Power isn’t shy when it comes to breaking the mould.As you can see from our results, Paddy Power offers an excellent mobile experience too, coming up just behind Sky Bet in second place.Betfair It was a tight race between Paddy Power and Betfair for second place. Last year’s joint winner Betfair found itself dropping to third place this time around, so what’s gone wrong?Betfair still offers an excellent sports betting mobile app experience, scoring highly in overall user reviews. However, there have been four updates of the app in the last six months and this may have led to problems for some users. Overall it does still score highly in user reviews.Betfair also offers its app in more languages than most other mobile betting apps we analysed, with 12 available on the iOS app and six for Android users to choose from.Betway Just shy of our top three was Betway. While to some it may be a surprise to see Betway challenging some of the more established operators, to us it isn’t. From our previous bookmaker comparisons, we’ve seen that Betway has performed well across numerous categories, putting some of the big names in the business to shame.So, what makes Betway score so highly in our mobile betting app review? It may be one of the smallest apps we’ve researched, but this app still offers plenty of functionality. In particular, the iOS version of its app scores incredibly highly.Ladbrokes Making up our top five is the long-established Ladbrokes. One of the most famous bookmakers on UK soil and beyond, Ladbrokes offers one of the best mobile betting apps around.Ladbrokes came in a respectable 12th place in the sports betting category on iOS, and its overall user rating among both Android and iOS users was also impressive.Best bookmaker apps for iOS As well as providing a general overview to the best mobile betting apps, we’ve separated iOS and Android as some mobile apps work better on a particular operating system.There are a few reasons for this. It appears that iOS apps are easier to develop, and with Apple’s focus on intuitive design and interaction, they tend to provide a more user-friendly experience. This can make a betting app work much more seamlessly on an iOS device than on an Android offering.Android apps are much more complicated to develop, with the need to create an application that can work on a multitude of devices. IOS apps only need to focus on building an app that works on an Apple device.Below, we’ve listed our top five iOS mobile betting apps. Sky Bet William Hill Paddy Power Ladbrokes BetfairSky Bet tops our Android table, and it performed well in our iOS tests too. One of the most popular online bookmakers in the UK today, it’s important Sky Bet caters to as many customers as possible, which it achieves by offering two separate fully functional apps – one for iOS and one for Android.Conclusion Our overall aim for this bookmaker comparison was to examine the ease of use of each mobile app.Interestingly, it appeared obvious that in general, users are looking for similar criteria. All bookmakers that scored highly in our comparison also scored highly in the user review categories.There were exceptions to this, though. The mobile betting apps offered by Sportingbet and LeoVegas, for example, scored highly in the user review category despite not making our top five.We also noted that the apps that are updated frequently tended to score highest in our bookmaker comparison. Regular updates show that the operator in question is always trying to provide a better mobile experience.The size of the app also played a big part in the overall user experience. It’s frustrating to punters when they attempt to download an app but its size requires them to remove or delete other applications they have on their device. Generally speaking, the best mobile betting apps tend to be reasonably small and streamlined as much as possible to make it easier for users to download.We’ve also found that while Sky Bet reigned supreme overall, it was Betway which scored highest in our iOS-specific research. Betway may not be the first bookmaker punters think of when looking to download a betting app, but coming top of our iOS list and fourth overall means it should be considered as serious competition to some of the more famous names.About Providing expert tips and in depth betting theory, is the world’s biggest social network of sports betting tipsters.

Warren Gatland lays out blueprint for future Lions tours

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Man with a plan: Warren Gatland wants to protect the uniqueness oft he Lions. Photo: Getty Images Head coach Warren Gatland explains what needs to happen when the new Lions deal is done and why preparation time is key Then there is the possibility of reducing the number of games on tour. The 1971 Lions in Australia and New Zealand, all amateurs, played a heroic 26 games and the first professional Lions, in South Africa in 1997, got through 13.Ten seems to be the number now but there are talks about cutting that down and for all the chat about the casualty counts on Lions’ trips, Gatland is not having that one either.He added: “I would hate to see the Lions die as an entity and not have the opportunity to prepare properly. I just think it is unique.“If we were going away and playing two warm-up matches and three Tests I don’t think there would be the same interest. I don’t think there would be most of the tour packages sold out and perhaps the next tour would be there and people would go, ‘It is the Lions, only five games, you can watch that in two or three weeks on TV and so what?’Roaring support: Would fans support a shorter Lions tour in such big numbers? Photo: Getty Images“Ten matches is about right and, I personally would hate to see the Lions going for five matches. You would lose the mystique of what the Lions are all about, even for the people who are planning to go on the tour but are only going for the last three weeks. You can get excited watching the first games on TV and seeing the crowds.“It is a little bit special in terms of the build-up and every week now we are talking about this. People write about the Lions team of the week – it is six or eight months away and it has created that interest. I don’t think it would do that if we were just going on a five-match tour.“I understand the pressures that the Lions and the board are under and there is a lot of external stuff from the clubs, the unions and the different competitions about release of players and how long they are going to be off. That is all part of the next negotiations. Clubs do get compensated for the players coming away.“Hopefully when the next deal is done, the stakeholders will sit around the table and thrash out what will be the best thing.”center_img Gatland has got the wrong end of the deal this time and like the lost driver he should not be starting from here. Let’s hope the powers-that-be get it right next time – but don’t bet on it.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. Just under seven months out from the first game of the British & Irish Lions tour to New Zealand and head coach Warren Gatland must feel like the lost driver who stops to ask directions from a passer-by and gets told he shouldn’t be starting from where he is at the moment.Gatland was in London recently to launch the latest Lions shirt – gets yours from Canterbury here – and facing up to the well-documented hardships of doing one of the most prestigious jobs in the game. Knackered players, no preparation time, repeated pleas from former coaches to change the itinerary all ignored and a brutal fixture list.Gatland is not worried about the games – the more brutal the better as far as he is concerned – but he is worried about the lack of preparation time. That was flagged up by Ian McGeechan, after the 1993 tour to New Zealand, who wanted a couple of weeks with his squad before any future tours.That has not happened even though after the last tour to Australia, which the Lions won 2-1, Gatland flagged up the same concerns. And guess what – he is in the same boat again and he might not have a paddle.The big reveal: The new Lions jersey is unveiled in London. Photo: Getty ImagesThe next year is a big one for the whole Lions concept. After the trip to New Zealand the 12-year deal with SANZAR expires and the suits will gather in some swanky hotel and thrash out the next one – everyone wants a slice of the tourists but no one on either side of the equator seems to want them to win.“If I was looking at this thing… if I had one more week’s preparation and no midweek game before the first Test that would give me one week extra,” said Gatland.“I did a report and the last thing I said was I am wasting my time – I could have written this report in three words and the guy said, ‘What are they?’ Preparation, preparation, preparation.“You have got the two (Premiership and Pro12) finals on the Saturday, we get together on the Sunday then fly on Monday, arrive on Wednesday and play our first game (on the Saturday) – so it is going to be a challenge. A third to a half the squad might be involved in the two finals. We would have had two camps with the other squad players so a lot of them will be preparing for the first game.”Gatland has come up with an answer to this conundrum but it involves a bit of give from the home domestic leagues. How about once, just once, every four years they squeeze their fixture lists just a little, by inserting one midweek game, to give the Lions coach in 2021, and it could be Gatland, an extra seven days or so with his squad?Date change: Perhaps the Premiership final could move back a week in Lions years. Photo: Getty ImagesThe New Zealander has got no issues this time round – he knew what he was signing up for – and has to lump it, but something has to give. A personal view is that the Pro12 and the Premiership should ditch their beloved play-offs in Lions years but that is not going to happen.last_img read more

Shakin’ Stevens Residence / Matt Gibson Architecture + Design

first_imgShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Manufacturers: Cole and Son, 2Pac, MessmateSave this picture!© Shannon McGrathText description provided by the architects. This compact double fronted Victorian workers cottage in set within a gritty one way street in Richmond – a stone’s throw from the MCG and just down from the corner of the infamous Royal Hotel. Unlike other boom style Victorian double front dwellings in Australian cities this cottage is compact and quaint. This area of Richmond (in a process of gentrification) contains mostly compact and heterogeneous building types built up to the street with comparatively narrow or short lot sizes and in many cases not designed for the long term.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe conceptual drive for the interior of this house is largely in response to a brief which crystallised into a need to be connected with ‘green’ space. Beyond the heritage front the project wanted to not necessarily increase floor area but to increase amenity. To make spaces feel bigger, more functional, to be light filled, and to visually extend &borrow from within and beyond the site.Save this picture!Diagram‘Shakin’ Stevens’ is not only about a coloured front door but the experience of what’s beyond it. Conceptually beyond this green door, there are no doors; the newer space is about flow and continuity where delineation of space is soft and less finite than expected from the street.  In a clear formal idea the rear composes 3 extruded white cubes that look essentially like they have been let go, landing like dice randomly on top of each other next to a Victorian (monopoly) house. The 3 cubes, as with the existing villa, are composed so as to be immediately deciphered internally or externally and in clear programmatic zones all house different functions. The cubes which are opened at their ends (or sides where required) are utilised as devices to orchestrate views to green elements within the structure and to greenery within or beyond the site.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathAt just over 200sqm & 25m depth, opportunities arose from site constraints. The site boundary walls were conceptually designated as internal and lined with perimeter greenery set for maturity. The existing building was seen as an endearing element worth retaining, to be celebrated and re-programmed through colour and detail into the whole.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!1st Floor PlanThe rear spaces both internal &external are about volume & enclosure and conversely lack of it, flexibility to be undefined, spaces you move through rather in or out of. Definition is brought through the allocation of detail- ensuring structural tolerances mean cubes don’t  touch, concealing fixed window framing so materials run flush continuously through thresholds. Variation of volume, material and colour similarly assist the clarity and expression of the formal idea whilst also being practical to particular spaces – living is more open, dining more intimate. ‘Non-cube’ materials are deliberately recessive – recycled timber floorboards line circulation areas while glazed panels conceal into cube walls.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrath‘Shakin’ utilises many micro level ESD principles – siting, sun protection, thermal mass, passive temperature regulation, low embodied energy (& cost @ $550k) construction techniques& materials, structural depth with high R values. A grey water system, 2 side water storage tanks, fake grass & ‘succulent’ planting temper water usage whilst providing intrinsic features of the colour scheme.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!SectionBeyond these at a macro level this interior is about future robustness meaning users now have the amenity to avoid suburbia using up precious planet resource and transport time. They have borrowed what was previously laying dormant within and beyond their walls. This is the real ‘sustainability’- a model for space/s that can sustain user types (a couple, 2 couples, a family with teenagers, guests) through separation of sleeping zones about a flexible living zone that they can up-size (externally). This interior proposes to extend beyond its enclosure & embrace its ‘green-ness’!Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe structures of different periods are connected yet seemingly separated by a central courtyard and vertical stair chasm. Colour & detail variation are utilised tactfully to exaggerate the settings & temporal divisions of the structures. Although clearly a strategy of ‘viva la difference’ the different structures are married by shades of green chosen to adorn feature elements within each.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe client requested a predominantly white interior with a feature highlight colour. Green became an obvious choice, working in combination with the proximity of the garden. The green spaces within and beyond the site -instead of being the backdrop to the white interior – became the focus. The white cubes became the lens for these events– effectively assisting in bringing the green inside and dissolving barriers of enclosure. Interior, exterior and landscape -through colour- all inform each other with equal importance. Colour was vitally important in adding glow and clarity to this expression.  Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathProject gallerySee allShow lessSaleh Barakat Gallery / L.E.FT ArchitectsSelected ProjectsShenyang Taoxian International Airport Terminal 3 / CNADRISelected Projects Share Shakin’ Stevens Residence / Matt Gibson Architecture + Design ArchDaily Year:  Australia Architects: Matt Gibson Architecture + Design Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Shannon McGrath+ 49 Share “COPY” Shakin’ Stevens Residence / Matt Gibson Architecture + DesignSave this projectSaveShakin’ Stevens Residence / Matt Gibson Architecture + Design 2010center_img Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs Area:  200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” CopyHouses•Melbourne, Australia Projects Photographs:  Shannon McGrath Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeMatt Gibson Architecture + DesignOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneAustraliaPublished on August 12, 2016Cite: “Shakin’ Stevens Residence / Matt Gibson Architecture + Design” 11 Aug 2016.

Tagged with: Recruitment / people Former Health Secretary Alan Milburn MP will be the chairman of the new Joint Committee on the draft Charities Bill which will examine issues include the proposed regulation of fundraising.The Joint Committee consists of six MPs and six peers. It will take oral and written evidence on the draft Charities Bill, which is expected to be published at the end of May 2004, and make its recommendations in a report by 30 September 2004.The Committee expects to start taking oral evidence in early June. Alan Milburn said: “We are working to a tight timetable – not of our own choosing – and will have to start taking oral evidence soon after the draft Bill is published. We recognise this leaves little time for people to give us their views, but hope that many of the issues are already well known. A clear and concise paper will carry as much weight with us as the oral evidence we hear. The Joint Committee is especially keen to ensure that the views of small charities are taken into account.” Advertisement Howard Lake | 16 May 2004 | Newscenter_img  20 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Joint Committee will concentrate its inquiry on the following themes:Does the draft Bill strike the right balance between flexibility and accountability? How can the danger of over-regulation be avoided?Will the Bill improve public confidence in charities? Will it encourage more giving and volunteering?Are the 12 new charitable purposes the draft Bill proposes for a charity satisfactory — should there be additions or deletions? Is the phrase ‘public benefit’ best left undefined in the Bill? Do fee-paying schools which are charities demonstrate adequate public benefit arising from their activities?Are there aspects of the draft Bill which would permit the charity and voluntary sector to play a greater role in the delivery of public services if they wished to do so?What are the likely benefits and costs of the draft Bill? What level of funding will be necessary for the Charity Commission to carry out its additional tasks effectively?Is it right that the draft Bill does not include the recommendation in the Strategy Unit consultation paper, Private Action, Public Benefit, that charities should be allowed to trade as part of their normal activities without the need to set up a trading company?Are the proposals to regulate fund-raising workable?Are the specific proposals in the draft Bill (such as the new corporate legal form, the Charitable Incorporated Organisation) adequate, workable and beneficial?If you wish to send in written evidence then you should do so sooner rather than later. The Joint Committee has asked larger charities to submit written evidence no later than 21 June and smaller charities by 28 June 2004. That said, written evidence received up to 15 July 2004 will still be taken into account.

Rural Indiana Health Care Coverage Still Lagging

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Rural Indiana Health Care Coverage Still LaggingPhil LehmkuhlerWhile the Affordable Care Act has increased the number of Americans covered by health insurance, rural residents, including those in Indiana, are being left behind. According to government figures, about 18 million Americans have health insurance coverage today who did not have it prior to the ACA. But Indiana Rural Development State Director Phil Lehmkuhler says a higher percentage of rural residents have no insurance coverage compared to their urban counterparts, “Before the ACA, many rural Hoosiers struggled to find affordable healthcare; but, today, they have access to multiple insurance options. Yet rural Indiana residents have not enrolled in the program to the extent their urban neighbors have.” In 2015, Indiana had the second lowest rural enrollment in the Great Lakes Region, enrolling 39 percent of those eligible compared to 43 percent in neighboring Illinois.Kathleen_Falk_Health and Human Services Region 5 Director Kathleen Falk said the fact that many involved in agriculture are self-employed may be part of the problem, “We know there are many more still without coverage, including many in rural communities.” When asked by HAT why rural residents have been slow to adopt the benefits of the ACA, Falk did not offer a clear-cut reason, “It might be that they just have not heard about the program. It is hard to reach these people in isolated areas.”She added that the need for health insurance for rural consumers is very real. Rural Americans suffer from higher rates of chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure than those living in urban areas do. Prior to the inception of the new Health Insurance Marketplace, on average, rural families paid nearly 50 percent of health care costs out of pocket, and one-in-five farmers was in debt because of medical bills.Falk urged rural residents to take advantage of the open enrollment period which ends on January 30. Hoosiers have affordable options available to them. More than 6 in 10 Hoosiers will be able to buy a plan for $75 or less a month in premiums after tax credits, and more than 9 out of 10 returning Hoosiers could save an average of $1,042 annually in premiums (before tax credits) for a plan in the same level of coverage by returning to shop.  Individuals who can afford to purchase health insurance this year but choose to go without it risk having to pay a fine of $695 or more. For instance, a family of four with an income of $70,000 will pay a fine of about $2,085 for 2016, based on the most recent IRS data.For more information on the Health Insurance Marketplace, please visit To seek an appointment with a navigator, call 2-1-1 or go to Rural Indiana Health Care Coverage Still Lagging Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jan 27, 2016 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Rural Indiana Health Care Coverage Still Lagging Previous articleSenate Working to Advance Energy LegislationNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truittlast_img read more
