Palm Beach County School’s Superintendent recommends distance learning to start the year

first_imgThe superintendent of the School District of Palm Beach County is recommending that the school board opt to start the 2020-2021 school year with online distance learning courses before transitioning “to brick and mortar in-person instruction when county health conditions permit.”Dr. Fennoy reported his recommendation stating that with the health and safety of students, staff members, and the community in mind, he does not believe schools should offer on campus classes until the governor and city officials allow the county to enter into Phase Two of the reopening process.Part of Dr. Fennoy’s recommendation includes weekly reevaluations on the health crisis to determine “when a phased or staged return is possible,” and the readiness of schools to transition from in person to online and vice versa, depending on the the severity of the health situation.The Palm Beach County School Board reached a consensus last week to continue virtual learning through the upcoming school year and is set to vote on the decision Wednesday.Classes are set to begin on August 10th.last_img read more

Woods missed a pair of 3-foot putts, took a double bogey from the fairway and was headed toward a weekend off at the course where he has won five times. But his birdie-birdie-par finish gave him a 76 and might be enough to make the cut. Along with missing short putts, Woods says his back felt a little stiff while warming up.

GENEVA (AP) — International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach is warning against Olympic boycotts. China’s human rights record is an expected target ahead of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. Some lawmakers and diplomats have criticized China for its detention and treatment of its Muslim minority Uighur people and pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong. The issue is personal for Bach, who won a gold medal in team fencing at the 1976 Montreal Olympics but could not defend the title when West Germany joined the United States and others in refusing to send teams to the 1980 Moscow Games. Bach said Friday that the only political effect the boycott of 1980 had was to trigger a revenge boycott of the following Olympic Games in Los Angeles.Bach also confirmed he will seek re-election as IOC president next year. Bach seems certain to get four more years in 2021 after almost half of the 100 International Olympic Committee members from around the world praised him in an online version of their annual meeting.last_img read more

NCAA violations could affect head coaches

first_imgAfter so much speculation about Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, the NCAA is not only keeping a close watch on players, but coaches as well.In a move proposed by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), secondary recruiting violations such as exceeding phone-call limits or sending a text message to a recruit could result in a suspension of one or more games for coaches.The proposal was approved in mid-September by the NCAA Division I and II Committees on Infractions.Grant Teaff, executive director of the AFCA, said his group to do its best possible to keep an eye on what is happening.“This is our request: Anything that has to do with recruiting, if there’s a proven violation, we want the ability for the NCAA to say this will cost you a week or a maximum of two weeks,” Teaff said.  “We as an association asked for that, and they granted that.”Secondary violations, which schools often report, also include: commenting on a recruit before he has signed a letter-of-intent, posting comments on other public social media sites and talking with a recruit during a non-contact period.For more information on USC athletics, follow Daily Trojan sports on twitter @DT_Sportslast_img read more

Stanford will not test the Trojans

first_imgThe Trojans have been fairly environmentally friendly these past couple years, but I think it’s finally time that they just chop down those trees.Saturday’s game against Stanford is not going to resemble one of the dramatic three-point margin-of-victory barn burners we’ve seen the last two times these teams have met. Nor is it going to be decided by the 50-point margins that USC inflicted on Arkansas State and Idaho, but when the clock hits zero, it will surely be remembered as one thing — a blowout.The Trojans have cruised through their first two games of non-conference play, while Stanford has struggled early on including a dismal performance resulting in a loss at Northwestern. For that reason, I expect USC to win by a three touchdown or so margin — it could be the first time since 2008 that the team beats the Cardinal by double digits.The Stanford team coming into town is a physical one — probably the most durable squad USC will face this season — but they are lacking the playmakers that led to a lot of their success last year, especially on offense.The Cardinal will be without wide receiver Ty Montgomery, who caused a lot of havoc in last year’s meeting, and the team’s leading rusher from last season in redshirt senior running back Remound Wright has struggled to get the running game going, for only 39 yards thus far this season.Being a program that typically prides themselves on their ground-and-pound running game that milks possession time, the Cardinal are averaging less than 110 yards per game to begin the season.In the passing game, Kevin Hogan very well might also be one of the most mediocre quarterbacks in all of college football, though his performance against Northwestern showed that he has the potential to slide below average.Against the Wildcats, Hogan completed only 20 of 35 passes for just over 150 yards to go along with an interception. If Hogan plays anything like that against USC, Stanford head coach David Shaw is going to need to look elsewhere for answers, and as fine as an academic institution Stanford is, I don’t think there’s any level of critical thinking that will solve the problems USC is going to cause him.His defensive unit comprises some big-time linebackers including Blake Martinez, Kevin Anderson and Peter Kalambayi, but good luck stopping a USC offense that features a Heisman Trophy candidate, a committee of running backs and a couple of the most dynamic and explosive players in college football right now — JuJu Smith-Schuster and Adoree’ Jackson.The Cardinal will hit hard and probably try to get under the Trojan’s skin, but if they’re unable to slow down the USC offense, Kessler and his weapons are just going to blow by them.Though this game is their first in conference play and is even considered to be a rivalry game, it won’t be the first true test for the Trojans that many people are saying it will.Save all that talk for next week on the road at Arizona State and the rest of USC’s schedule, which is ranked the third toughest remaining schedule, according to the ESPN Power Index.Saturday night, though, will serve as a statement game.Perfect timing, too. With the game being played in primetime and under the national spotlight, this is USC’S ideal moment to assert their No. 6 national ranking to the College Football Playoff Committee and the rest of country.Some people have said that USC’s ranking is too high and “undeserved” with their poor quality of opponents thus far. On Saturday night, they will show why they are knocking on the front door of the top five.Stanford had their chance to have fun nearly a decade ago when it marched into the Coliseum as a 41-point underdog and pulled off a one-point upset against, ending a 35-game home winning streak for a USC team that was ranked No. 1 in the Coaches Poll at the time.Double-digit favorites once again, you can expect the Trojans to actually cover the spread this time and by much more than 10 points.Darian Nourian is a senior majoring in print and digital journalism.

Why reliability of service is an integral part of TVBET’s strategy

first_img Digitain and LSports double up for simulated tennis roll out June 30, 2020 tweet Related Articles StumbleUpon Share Submit TVBET passes GLI test for five live games in Malta and Italy August 25, 2020 The golden rule for successful brand development is keeping up with the times and staying ahead of the competition. That’s according to TVBET, whose representatives have written for SBC News about reliability of service and why key to its success is the combo of game mechanics and creating a “sensed-presence effect” for players.It is hard to imagine the future of online gambling, projected to touch the $87.75 billion mark by 2024, without the implementation of the latest technologies. To reach success in this industry, operators need to be aware of the newest trends and monitor the market in search of alternative products to boost the gamers’ engagement.The key to the live-games success is a combo of captivating mechanics and interaction between player and dealer that creates a desirable sensed-presence effect.Live-dealer games take alternative betting to the new level because they are not dependent on externalities and offer an impressive variety of betting options for any taste. However, it is not enough to provide a great product. What’s even more important is to focus on your clients’ needs instead of your personal benefits. Reliability of service is the key.The strategy set out by TVBET is proven to boost efficiency and increase gross gaming revenues (GGR) in just a few months. It’s for this reason that over 130 partners globally have integrated our games, including a surge on the European side in recent months.One such example is Digitain, whose Head of External Communication Samvel Mkrtumyan shared his experience of working with TVBET.“We have been content partners with the TVBET team for some time now – and we are extremely happy with how the relationship has evolved,” he said. “Their products are delivered to a high technical and customer engagement standard – streaming quality is consistently very good and the games themselves are very popular with our partners.“TVBET have worked hard to deliver great customer experience and exciting live gaming opportunities in a highly professional way. Their level of client support is also first class – something our own network of partners have appreciated too.”A year ago we told CasinoBeats that, on average, the launch of TVBET games combined with marketing support had helped its partners to record a 56% increase in bets taken after one month, climbing to 200-300% after three months. These numbers have continued to climb as the igaming sector benefited, in relative terms, from the sports shutdown and associated shift to other forms of gambling. Even when all global sports events were put on hold, TVBET’s partners kept receiving a full suite of services and managed to increase their profit.A reliable revenue stream is one thing, and providing a range of products equipped with such a diversity of betting options (parlays, in-play odds, bets on future events, etc.) will always appeal to punters, but we are striving to stand out for our client cooperation.Customer support is extremely important between a provider and operator. TVBET maintains continuous communication and offers qualitative marketing support at no additional cost. Our support strategy involves helping partners boost the popularity of the games on their websites by means of in-depth analysis and expert assistance at all stages.Our clients also know that we only use certified equipment to provide bettors with 100% honest results – delivered in real time through game rounds lasting just a few minutes so players never get bored. TVBET live games are certified by Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) to guarantee reputable gaming. And to counter an industry myth, almost 50% of our products are unique to TVBET, with another soon to come in the form of FruitRace. The iGaming industry continues to develop at lightning speed, and it is impossible to stay on top if you ignore the latest technologies. For operators, cooperation with reputable providers that put the quality of their products and services first should become a number one priority. It is why, we believe, live-dealer games from TVBET will never lose their popularity. SBC Webinars and Digitain present Finding Value in Untapped Markets July 14, 2020last_img read more

(Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — God bless, Mary Hart. She stayed for the whole thing, getting almost as much screen time as she ever did on “Entertainment Tonight.”Hart and her fellow Dodgers fans were finally rewarded when Max Muncy hit the latest walk-off home run in World Series history, giving the Dodgers a 3-2 victory in 18 innings and ending the longest game (by time and innings) in World Series history early Saturday morning.“Just a stupid experience for everybody,” summarized David Freese, the last position player to enter the game (as a pinch-hitter in the 14th inning).“We’re looking to even it up tomorrow. Bottom line.” The home run was the improbable 38th in an impossible dream of a season for Muncy who started it as a non-roster invitee to spring training, shipped out to Triple-A to start the season.“It’s been a dream. … This whole year has been a surreal experience,” Muncy said.“What a dude,” Freese summarized again. “He came from Oakland, made some adjustments, dropped down in his stance, kept his eye and started blasting baseballs.”It was worth the wait for the Dodgers who are now guaranteed to – at least – play through the weekend at Dodger Stadium.“It was a must-win for us,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Our guys just persevered. It wasn’t pretty.“We’re feeling pretty good about ourselves right now, to have two more games at home. … I know it’s a lot better feeling than we had after Game 1 and Game 2.” L.A. strikes first! Joc Pederson goes deep to give the @Dodgers a 1-0 lead. pic.twitter.com/D6o0czce1X— FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) October 27, 2018 Tomorrow was already here.When the clock struck midnight in the 17th inning, it got a rousing cheer from the crowd in the stadium. Long before then, the game had devolved into that staple of California TV – a car chase you couldn’t look away from, too much invested to turn it off and go to bed before seeing how much damage would be done in the end.The 7-hour, 20-minute marathon exhausted the resources of both teams – 46 of a possible 50 players were used. Boston’s eight relievers included their Game 2 starter (David Price) and their scheduled Game 4 starter (Nathan Eovaldi).“I’m tired,” said Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger, one of 10 players who played all 18 innings. “But I feel a lot better being 2-1 than being down 3-0.”Indeed. The Dodgers played the entire game on the razor’s edge of falling down a likely-fatal three games to none. Now they will turn around in a mere 16½ hours and send … somebody to the mound with a chance to even the series. “Gotta get some sleep,” Dodgers left-hander Rich Hill said in the post-game locker room after answering a series of questions about starting Game 4.A few minutes later, Dodgers PR sent out an announcement saying the team’s Game 4 starter was … TBA – raising the question of what happened before Hill got to bed.“How do you spell that – TBA? TBA,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora when asked about his team’s pitching plans for Game 4.Boston’s TBA was supposed to be Nathan Eovaldi. But Cora turned to him in the 12th inning of Game 3 and Eovaldi threw 97 pitches and allowes just three hits over six-plus innings. He is the first reliever to throw five innings or more in a World Series game since Madison Bumgarner in Game 7 of the 2014 Series for the Giants.“The effort was amazing,” Cora said of the losing pitcher. “We kept talking to him. ‘I’m good. I’m good. I’m good.’”The two-time Tommy John survivor (and former Dodger) earned respect from both sides of the field.“Just an insane outing,” Freese said. “You start thinking about Bumgarner. At least, I did. Eovaldi did such a great job for them. Just an animal.”That’s how long the game lasted – Walker Buehler’s start was a faded memory by the time it ended.The Dodgers got seven brilliant innings from Buehler, survived a blown save by Kenley Jansen, saved the game with great defense in the 10th, nearly lost it with poor defense in the 13th and tied the score in the bottom of the 13th only when the Red Sox bungled a run across for them.Did you get all that?Clayton Kershaw appeared as a pinch-hitter (and flew out in the 17th). Eighteen of his fellow pitchers actually made it to the mound and threw a combined 561 pitches. Muncy was a possible goat – he left first uncovered in the 13th-inning mishap and struck out after launching a drive just foul down the right field line in the 15th.Then he was the hero, extending Eovaldi for seven pitches to start the 18th and finally launching a full-count cutter over the wall in left-center field.“The at-bat before (in the 15th), he got me on a really good backdoor cutter,” Muncy said. “He had really good stuff all night long and he wasn’t missing a spot. Next at-bat, he tried to go backdoor cutter again but he left this one a little over the plate. And thankfully for me, he did that because I was able to get my bat on it.”Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Walker Buehler has Dodger Stadium ROCKING after that strike out 🔥 pic.twitter.com/Y2GMWSfDnY— FOX Sports (@FOXSports) October 27, 2018 Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start That moment when you start a World Series game and completely shut down a 100+ win team. pic.twitter.com/HuL5qy9KSD— FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) October 27, 2018 How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire last_img read more

Fantasy Injury Updates: Greg Olsen, Austin Hooper, Evan Engram, more TEs affect Week 14 start ’em, sit ’em calls

first_imgWEEK 14 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Greg Olsen playing in Week 14?Olsen (concussion) didn’t practice Wednesday or Thursday and he’s going to be in a race to be cleared by the league’s concussion protocol ahead of Sunday’s game in Atlanta. Ian Thomas would start if Olsen is out.Thomas becomes a serious streaming option if Olsen is out and makes for a very easy plug-and-play replacement for Olsen owners. Thomas’ stats this season have been almost non-existent, but that’s because he and Olsen almost never are on the field at the same time. If Olsen is out, Thomas should take on his whole role in the Carolina offense — the same role that saw him flourish down the stretch last year while Olsen was out. WEEK 14 DFS LINEUPS:DK Cash | DK GPP | FD Cash | FD GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPAustin Hooper injury updateHooper (MCL) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday for the Falcons, his first official practice action since being injured in Week 10. Atlanta takes on Carolina at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.Hooper’s return would make him a Week 14 fantasy starter – his backups weren’t really in play, anyway. The later-week practices should provide confirmation that Hooper is hopefully good to go.WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endEvan Engram injury newsEngram (foot) told reporters Wednesday he expects to play on Monday night against the Eagles. On Thursday’s New York injury report, Engram was listed as a limited participant in practice.Engram’s return makes him a fantasy starter and crushes any streaming appeal that his backup, Kaden Smith, might’ve had. If you own Engram and things are still iffy heading into the weekend, Smith is a fine stash in case Engram is a surprise scratch.MORE WEEK 14:Waiver pickups | FAAB planning | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOSGerald Everett injury statusEverett (knee) missed Wednesday’s practice after his Week 13 absence allowed Tyler Higbee to shine against the Cardinals. The Rams don’t play until Sunday night in Week 14, and Everett’s playing time was already trending downward in the weeks before his absence.Higbee is probably the preferred tight end here regardless of Everett’s active/inactive status, but expecting a repeat of Higbee’s 100-yard game against the Cardinals would be foolish. He’s in another favorable spot against the Seahawks, so he’s still worth starting, but temper your expectations. Two big-name tight ends both look like they could be active in Week 14, as Evan Engram and Austin Hooper bolster the tight end rankings with probable returns from injury. Things don’t look as good for Greg Olsen, but his absence would create a tight end sleeper in Ian Thomas. And then there are Gerald Everett and David Njoku, two trickier situations that will cause start ’em, sit ’em headaches throughout the day on Sunday. For updates on banged-up WRs Adam Thielen, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Julio Jones and more, click here; for news on injured RBs Dalvin Cook, Josh Jacobs, Marlon Mack, and more, go here. Follow us on Twitter for more news and updates @SN_Fantasy. MORE WEEK 14 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderWhen will David Njoku be activated from IR?This situation is getting bizarre, as Njoku has told reporters he’s ready to play but the Browns are still not activating him. They have until the middle of next week to utilize his return from IR function based on when he had returned to practice. Cleveland plays Cincinnati in Week 14 before the Cardinals in Week 15.#Browns Freddie Kitchens on waiting to activate TE David Njoku from IR: Just want to make sure he’s ready to go. At that position, there’s no half-stepping it. He has to be ready to go in the game.— Scott Petrak ct (@ScottPetrak) December 4, 2019At this point, Njoku is mostly still in play because of that dream Arizona matchup in Week 15, and a return this week would have him on the border of being a fantasy starter simply due to his talent. Demetrius Harris and Ricky Seals-Jones would compete for Cleveland TE snaps with Njoku out.last_img read more

My point neither party is right both parties car only about the 1% if your the other 99% well bad news both want to keep you there so you are forced to rely on entitlements to survive. I vote do I feel it makes a difference no mostly because I don’t have the funds to buy the vote for the politician I like. So here’s the solution. Do it for yourself don’t listen to promises made by your parties nomination. When a dog or any other animal is backed into a corner they fight back. Humans are the only ones who will back down and accept what our government dishes out. Why? It easier to go along and get along. Fighting takes guts.fighting takes energy. Fighting takes having no fear even though the outcome may be bad. You fight Report Reply 1 reply · active 233 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down Thirsty · 233 weeks ago It is all rigged!

Educate yourselves with facts and not innuendo and then vote your conscience,not the party. If this is the “best” America can do fill political leadership we are in for a very rough next 4 years.
