Batesville, In. — Ghosts and Gobblins will be hitting local streets for Halloween soon and here are safety tips:Choose a costume that is not bulky, has trailing fabric or obstructs sight.Try to incorporate flashlights or glow sticks into costumes.Dried flowers, cornstalks and crepe paper catch fire easily. Keep all decorations away from open flames and other heat sources like light bulbs and heaters.Use a battery-operated candle or glow-stick in jack-o-lanterns. If you use a real candle, use extreme caution. Make sure children are watched at all times when candles are lit. When lighting candles inside jack-o-lanterns, use long, fireplace-style matches or a utility lighter. Be sure to place lit pumpkins well away from anything that can burn and far enough out of the way of trick-or-treaters, doorsteps, walkways and yards.Remember to keep exits clear of decorations, so nothing blocks escape routes.Make sure all smoke alarms in the home are working.Tell children to stay away from open flames including jack-o-lanterns with candles in them. Be sure they know how to stop, drop and roll if their clothing catches fire. (Have them practice, stopping immediately, dropping to the ground, covering their face with hands, and rolling over and over to put the flames out.Go only to homes that have porch lights on.Never eat candy until a parent or guardian can inspect it.Report any suspicious objects or activity to police.If a candy wrapper is compromised discard the item.
John O’Shea will return to Bournemouth on Saturday eternally grateful for the day Sir Alex Ferguson sent him there to toughen him up for the glittering career ahead of him. Press Association O’Shea told SAFSee: “It was a crucial stage for me because I was playing reserve team football at Manchester United and the manager felt that the rough and tumble of Division Two at the time, League One now, would have been ideal for me. “I played a good few games under Mel Machin, who was the manager at Bournemouth and Sean O’Driscoll was the coach, the assistant manager at Liverpool now. “They wanted to play football the right way, but also they made me understand how important it was playing for points. Playing for a team’s survival in leagues like that was a crucial development stage for me, and also playing with good, experienced players too, learning my craft. It was a great experience.” Almost 16 years on, the now 34-year-old O’Shea will lock horns with the Cherries, who are playing top-flight football for the first time in their history, and he admits that was not a scenario he envisaged during his time at the club. He said: “Honestly if you had asked me at the time, no. Obviously teams can develop, but at that time in terms of the stadium, the facilities around the place, you obviously wouldn’t have said that was a Premier League facility. “But huge credit must go to the staff and the fans at the club at the time when they went through a couple of dodgy spells where it looked like they could have even folded. “But they dug deep and they got together, and obviously Eddie Howe came back at a crucial stage for them and they started to get on a roll, and investors saw it as a good opportunity too and they got on board and they were able to go from strength to strength. “It’s been an incredible turn-around in the space of time to be in the Premier League.” The then 18-year-old Manchester United defender was dispatched to Dean Court on a three-month loan deal in January 2000 at the start of a near 12-year spell at Old Trafford, which saw him win the Champions League, five league titles and both the FA Cup and League Cup, as he took an important step towards learning his trade. On Saturday, the now Sunderland captain will return to face his former club in the Barclays Premier League thankful for the lessons he learned during his time in Dorset.
New Delhi: Rohit Sharma is nicknamed ‘Hitman’ for a particular reason. He has the ability to hit big sixes and also notch up massive scores. In ODIs, it is a format where he has dominated for the last couple of seasons. Ever since his 209 against Australia in Bengaluru in 2013, Rohit has become the ultimate destroyer of Australian bowling attacks in any part of the world. In the first ODI against Australia in Sydney, Rohit created yet another slice of history to keep India in the hunt for a win. The Mumbai opener notched up his 22nd century and his seventh against Australia but it was one more statistic which caught everyone’s attention. This feat is a new record in world cricket.Rohit’s tally included six sixes as he cleared the Sydney Cricket Ground with ease. His tally increased his number of sixes hit against Australia to 64, which is the most by any batsmen against a single opposition. Rohit broke the previous world record held by Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi, who blasted 63 sixes in ODIs against Sri Lanka. While Afridi took 72 games to hit 63 sixes, Rohit has achieved the feat in a staggering 29 games.Read More | India vs Australia, 1st ODI live cricket score: Rohit falls for 133Rohit has also hit a total of 27 sixes in Australia, which is the most in a single country. Even here, he beat the previous record of 25 held by Shahid Afridi but he shattered AB de Villiers’s record of 26 against India in India. One of his sixes off Marcus Stoinis also went past 100 meters as Australia faced the wrath of the Mumbai dasher. His fifth century in Australia was also the joint-most by a visiting player in Australia, matching Kumar Sangakkara. His tally of seven hundreds is the second-most by a batsman in ODIs against Australia behind Sachin Tendulkar’s nine.Read More | MS Dhoni achieves special milestone, goes past 10,000 runs for IndiaThe India right-hander continued to blaze away and kept India in the hunt but with his dismissal for 133, India lost the initiative and Australia closed in on a victory. Rohit also holds the record for the highest individual score by an Indian batsman in Australia when he blasted 171 in the ODI in Perth in 2016 but that also ended up in a losing cause.

Better Collective cautious on quick recovery as COVID drags growth momentum August 25, 2020 StumbleUpon Sky Bet’s decision to close its affiliate hub has been the hot topic of the week in online betting and gaming and it’s one which will get great scrutiny at next week’s Betting on Sports Conference. The closure of Sky’s affiliate programme has the potential to send ripples throughout the industry on several levels, which is why the issue will be debated on a number of sessions across the event, held at Olympia Conference Centre from 12-15 September.Sky Betting & Gaming CEO Richard Flint is appearing on the panel on social responsibility – the main reason that Sky has given for closing its affiliate hub, but whether the decision needs to be followed up by other operators will be discussed in the 14:45 session entitled: “IMGL Masterclass: Regulation – Liability management: Why the buck doesn’t stop with operators”.Morten Ronde, CEO of Danish Online Gambling Association & Director of IMGL, Gaming Attorney at Saiber LLC Jeremy Kleiman, Clifton Davies Co-Founder David Clifton and Tal Itzhak Ron, Chairman and CEO of Tal Ron, Drihem & Co., Law Firm will all be discussing where an operator’s line of liability lies. Clifton explained: “This seems to me an unfortunate but inevitable consequence of the principle behind the combined regulatory requirements of data protection legislation, advertising rules and Gambling Commission LCCP demands, namely that gambling operators must take responsibility for the misdemeanours of their affiliates. “Sky B&G appears to have decided that managing the compliance risks posed by its affiliates is too challenging a task and, with regulators adopting increasingly tough enforcement stances, one can’t help but wonder how many other operators will reach the same view.”Ronde added: “From an operator view it’s very unsatisfactory that the affiliates do not seem to have any responsibility or liability of their own. The authorities have chosen to go after the operators because they are easier to locate. We see the same pattern in Denmark.”Kleiman said a similar thing has happened in the US: “In an odd way, strong regulation in the US has had a similar effect, namely, killing off the affiliate business. Most affiliates do not want to undergo licensing, which is required in NJ depending on the compensation structure, for fear that their operations in other markets will be scrutinized by the regulator. And operators do not want the compliance obligation of policing their affiliates.”However many affiliates are not pleased with the way they are being portrayed. Lee-Ann Johnstone, CEO at Best Odds Marketing, is moderating a panel on super affiliates on day one of the conference. She commented: “This decision appears to quite reactive from Sky Bet, through it’s not the only option out there as operators do have other choices when it comes to managing affiliate performance against regulatory requirements.”Better Collective CEO Jesper Soegaard, Chief Affiliate Officer at Clever Advertising Group Marcos Oliveira, Bookies.com Managing Director Matthew Glazier and XL Media CEO Ory Weihs will be on that panel discussing the business landscape for affiliates. Glazier added: “Sky Bet’s decision to close their UK affiliate programme was seismic, leaving affiliate partners searching for answers. Some affiliates have been affected to the degree that their business has been decimated, while many are now left wondering whether other operators will follow suit or if Sky Bet have just been the lone wolf.”There will be a whole range of other issues debated on the Betting on Affiliates Track. The four-session agenda at #boscon2017 will cover selling your affiliate business and protecting revenues through diversification, along with an update on the most pressing issues for affiliates in today’s climate and predictions for the future amidst a period of consolidation.Gemma Boore, Associate at Mishcon de Reya LLP, is talking about ‘Speaking with a single voice’, an issue that she feels is particularly appropriate in the current climate.“The news that Sky Betting and Gaming has closed down its affiliate programme has caused shockwaves in the sector,” she said. “However, it is a timely reminder for affiliates who, if they want their industry to succeed, will need to ensure they continue not only to comply with existing regulations, but may also need to improve standards.”“Sky’s decision to close its programme on 28 days’ notice was in accordance with its contractual rights, which actually allow the operator to cancel the programme without notice. This is common practice in the industry and leaves affiliates at risk as their commercial partners can terminate agreements at any time and halt affiliates’ income streams. “In order to reduce the risk of losing valuable contracts in this way, affiliates will need to demonstrate their value by not only delivering on their promises to direct sufficient traffic, but also by doing so in a socially responsible way. If the future success of the sector is to be assured, affiliates need to work in harmony with operators.”A few tickets for the event are still available, and right now you can get a fantastic 25% Group Discount when buying 3 or more – get them HERE.Betting on Sports is organised by SBC Events, part of the SBC Global group of companies which works with industry leaders to develop the sports and sports betting industries.

After finishing last season with the worst record in franchise history, the Lakers have few outside expectations to make the NBA playoffs amid concerns about Bryant’s durability and the team’s failure to land a marquee free agent. But Russell headlines the Lakers’ long-term rebuilding project amid intrigue surrounding his playmaking. “I tried to keep guys involved as much as possible,” Russell said about his Summer League play. “A lot of guys need you to create for them. You have to pick and choose when to create for yourself. So I tried to mix it up.” Russell also downplayed his turnovers and shooting percentage, believing that both of those numbers will improve once he becomes more familiar with his teammates. “If I miss 20 in a row and coach tells me to keep shooting, that’s what I’m going to do. That’s what got me here,” said Russell, who averaged 19.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and five assists while shooting 41 percent from three-point range during his freshman season with the Buckeyes. “I was forced to do a lot for my team in doing a lot of extraordinary things. People weren’t expecting it. But I made something happen out of nothing.” Can Russell do the same thing with the Lakers? Coach Byron Scott has not assured Russell yet of the starting point guard position. But instead of worrying about that, Russell has narrowed his focus to two things. First, Russell has received the memo about Scott’s conditioning-heavy practices. “Coach Scott does a great job of getting the guys running and getting them in shape,” Russell said. “So I’m trying to do that the best way I can.”Second, Russell dismissed any concerns about Scott’s Princeton-based offense, which relies on a heavy playbook and fewer pick-and-rolls than more traditional offenses. “Coach Scott has been real successful with his players and his system,” Russell said, mindful that Scott has coached Jason Kidd, Chris Paul and Kyrie Irving. “So I can’t question the Princeton offense. With Phil Jackson, I can’t question the triangle (offense) even if I don’t know too much about it I don’t know too much about the Princeton offense. But I’m going to trust what he has going on and go with it.”But for now, Russell has enjoyed his free time exploring Los Angeles. He took a helicopter tour for an aerial view of the city. He attended the L.A. Special Olympics. Although he criticized his own golf game, Russell has visited various driving ranges. He sounded most passionate about paintball, a hobby he often shares with family members and friends that have moved out here with him.“I’m trying to do a little bit of everything,” Russell said. “L.A. has so much to offer. So I want to take advantage of it.”Soon enough, Russell also hopes to do that on the hardwood. With one click of a button, Lakers rookie point guard D’Angelo Russell made an impassioned fan base more upset than anything regarding his Summer League play. Russell suggested in a tweet nearly two weeks ago that Tracy McGrady is the greatest player of all time. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant and his legions of fans expressed their disapproval over Russell’s since-deleted tweet, though Russell said Bryant “was cool” about the incident. “There’s a lot of spoiled Lakers fans. I wasn’t downgrading Kobe at all,” Russell said Saturday in an interview with the Los Angeles News Group. “I was just watching a highlight tape of Tracy McGrady and I got excited. I tweeted and the whole state of California went crazy.”At least some of the Lakers’ fan base has simmered down. Russell signed autographs and took pictures with Lakers fans on Saturday at The Grove, where he made a promotional appearance for Birchbox, which gave him a box of the company’s fragrance and skin-care products. Russell hopes to hear cheers when he throws out the first pitch for the Dodgers-Giants game on Monday night at Dodger Stadium. But after spending the past month completing morning workouts and pickup scrimmages at the Lakers’ practice facility in El Segundo, Russell sounded eager for his workload to grow. Among the first items to check off: Russell wants to meet both with Bryant and the recently retired Steve Nash. “I’m trying to figure out their mentality with each practice and each game. How do they manage to be around the game for so long and be successful?” said Russell, whom the Lakers selected second overall out of Ohio State in this year’s draft. “I want to learn how to stick around this league. I don’t think there’s a cheat code to it. But the sooner you find it out, the better you’ll be.”Russell could find out in about a month, when the Lakers begin training camp. Then, Russell will have his first chance to rectify his Las Vegas Summer League performance. As the Lakers went 1-4 during that stretch, Russell averaged 11.8 points on 37.7 percent shooting and had more turnovers (3.5) than assists (3.2). But Russell suggested what happened in Vegas will stay in Vegas.“A lot of guys translate it over when it’s time, and a lot of guys don’t,” Russell said about Summer League. “I just want to be one of those guys that bring it when it matters.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
