The traveling team consists of 25 players, while the other four are on the practice squad.“The team has a lot of potential and this is the best talent I’ve seen since I joined the team,” Campbell said.The team consists of five seniors, 10 juniors, five sophomores, and nine freshmen. There are 12 returners of the 29 players on the team.For the first season, the team is part of the Texas Collegiate Soccer League Premier Division. The Premier Division is made up of the anticipated best club soccer teams in the state of Texas.“It was an honor to be selected for this division, but I was nervous when I first saw the teams we would be playing,” Campbell said.The team’s next game is against Baylor University on Sept. 20.“I am particularly nervous about this game because Baylor has beaten us in the past,” Campbell said. “I think the girls are anxious to play because of the rivalry TCU now has with Baylor.”Later in the month they will face off in a non-divisional game against Tarleton State University. They finish their season with games against Texas Tech University, University of Texas-Austin, and Texas A&M University.There is a regional tournament held in November, but the location of the tournament has yet to be announced.With a good showing at the regional tournament, the team could be invited to play in the national tournament held in Arizona.

Dutch watchdog urges pension funds to prepare for hard Brexit

first_imgSome asset managers have already transferred assets run for EU entities out of UK vehicles, including M&G, Columbia Threadneedle, and First State.Although derivatives contracts could be continued, UK-based broker-dealers could be blocked from applying changes after a hard Brexit, Kerkvliet added.In such circumstances it would still be possible to make arrangements between supervisors, such as a memorandum of understanding (MOU) or declarations of equivalence.The European regulator ESMA has said it intends to agree an MOU with UK supervisor FCA long before 29 March.An MOU would enable a pension fund to outsource asset management to a UK entity, while declarations of equivalence could solve problems with derivatives and subcontracting of asset management.However, Kerkvliet warned that such arrangements were not in place yet.‘Time running out for EU permissions’A number of UK asset managers, central clearing parties and broker-dealers have set up offices in the EU to handle European clients’ assets or contracts, but the AFM warned that other British companies had been very late to take such measures.Kerkvliet said that the AFM, like other European regulators, had received a large number of applications from UK parties, and that it couldn’t guarantee that all licences would be granted in time.The watchdog called on pension funds to discuss the issue with their outsourcing partners and to set up alternative options in case their service providers hadn’t anticipated developments sufficiently.When asked by Pensioen Pro, DNB made clear that it subscribed to the AFM’s viewpoint. Michael Lansink, head of trading at risk manager Cardano, said he wasn’t expecting derivatives disasters in the wake of a hard Brexit.“It is mainly very opaque at the moment, and it potentially generates much legal and operational work,” he said.He observed that UK banks roughly follow three Brexit strategies for providing derivatives to Dutch clients:Use EU-based entities to take on all existing bilateral contracts with the same terms and conditionsUse EU-based entities only taking on new contracts, with the existing ones remaining in the UKApply for a license with the AFM to keep on serving the Dutch market from the UKAll British banks were highly motivated to keep doing business in the EU, Lansink said, and were sometimes changing strategy or working on more than one option at the same time. Pension funds must ensure their asset managers and derivatives counterparties are fully prepared for a possible hard Brexit on 29 March next year, according to a Dutch regulator.Speaking during a conference hosted by IPE’s sister publication Pensioen Pro last week, Joyce Kerkvliet, senior supervisor for asset management at financial markets regulator AFM, emphasised that both the AFM and its fellow regulator De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) were taking seriously the risk of no deal being reached between the UK and EU.The consequence of such an outcome would be that there would be no access to mutual financial markets and no transition period, she said.At the conference in Rotterdam, Kerkvliet cited derivatives and asset management as examples of possible risks. Outsourcing to a UK entity could no longer be allowed, meaning assets would have to be transferred to an entity within the EU.last_img read more

RPM Gaming puts new spin on betting via CricketSim product

first_img Ian Hogg joins RPM Gaming as Chairman May 5, 2020 StumbleUpon Submit Mark Wilson: How FSB is meeting the recreational cricket punter’s demands August 20, 2020 Share Related Articles SBC Roundtable: A new ‘Pace’ for live cricket trading July 8, 2020 To help fill the void of sporting content during the COVID-19 pandemic, RPM Gaming has launched a new simulated cricket product which aims to deliver a ‘realistic, engaging’ alternative for operators.‘CricketSim’ offers a variety of match formats, including Test, ODI and T20, for operators to integrate into their offerings. Each game will be based on existing teams and players, and ‘fuses the latest algorithms with a deep database of real-world cricket stats’ to represent the live-traded cricket currently available.Richard Thorp, Director of RPM Gaming, said: “As most operators pivot their attention to developing vertical-spread during these unparalleled times, virtual sports are emerging as a go-to product for plugging the gaps after this live sports suspension which has followed the outbreak of COVID-19.“Historically, virtuals have already surprised many with their ability to prize double-digit market share away from real sports betting. So, this trend will naturally extend in the current climate where their convenience is unmatched.“In-play was the missing piece in that virtual jigsaw, but now CricketSim can fill the void with accurate in-play odds and innovative content that affords fans the chance to still enjoy their favourite sport in a familiar live betting environment.”The virtual product will offer a host of short-form betting opportunities (e.g. over-by-over runs and next man out), coupled with ball-by-ball text commentary and live scoreboards.CricketSim is the first virtual product offered by RPM Gaming, and will utilise statistical modelling as well as information from RPM Data, the bespoke pricing and data-feeds wing of RPM Gaming.Thorp continued: “RPM Data was set up to provide zero-latency cricket trading feeds on the biggest range of matches and markets to serve the voracious appetite for live cricket betting across the planet.“While we can’t wait to roll out this unique feed when the real cricket action resumes, CricketSim was a logical stepping-stone product that we could create in the meantime for all our interested partners. It showcases our precise pricing ball-by-ball, and elevates in the in-play UX on virtuals too.”Partners now can offer these industry-leading API data solutions – designed for pricing precision, comprehensive coverage and ease of integration – both pre-game and in-game.

Thanks To A Generous Community, Santa’s On His Way

first_imgLunch Break Executive Director Gwendolyn Love with a pair of Santas from Dogs on the Farm, a boarding facility for pets in Middletown. Dogs on the Farm and Bayshore Middle School students collected donations of pet food and supplies to help families in need continue to care for their pets during tough economic times.arm in Middletown. Dogs on the Farm and Bayshore Middle School held a donation drive for pet food and supplies, which they delivered to Lunch Break on Wednesday.By Eileen MoonRED BANK – With Christmas just days away, Gwendolyn Love is happy to report that thanks to the generosity of the community, Santa Claus will definitely be coming to the homes of hundreds of needy families in the Red Bank area.“People have truly been generous,” said Love, who is executive director of the Lunch Break Soup Kitchen and food pantry, which provides a constellation of services to disadvantaged families in the two river area and beyond.“It’s just been amazing. We’re doing fine with the gifts right now. We’ve really been blessed by the community. We’re very thankful. Two years ago, it wasn’t like that.”That year, requests for help kept rising even as donations dropped, Love said. “They just kept coming. You’re signing up people and you don’t know if you’re going to have the gifts or not.”What Lunch Break does need, however, are monetary donations, Love said. “We are down with the money.” Because December is when the majority of donations come in, she is hoping for some last minute cash, noting that while people are more inclined to give during the holidays, the need for help is year-round – especially in the present economy.“I did read somewhere that 33 percent of all giving is going to take place Dec. 29, 30 and 31st. I’m hoping that’s true.”This year, Lunch Break has provided Christmas gifts and toys for 370 area families, an increase from last year, when they were able to help approximately 325 families.Love has seen more people making a personal donation than in past years. “They’re being more pro-active, just doing things on their own.”Social media has been a big help in spreading the word about what is needed, too.On average, Lunch Break is providing food pantry items and hot meals to some 400 to 500 families.And though December is solid, Love said she has some concerns once when January arrives. “That’s when everything drops off. Don’t forget us in January.”On Christmas Day, Lunch Break will be open, offering a Christmas breakfast from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. that is open to anyone. “Well have a nice, brief program, and we hope to give away toys.”All are welcome, notes Love.“This is a place a lot of people will come to just because they don’t want to be alone.”last_img read more

Middletown Holds Groundbreaking for Nut Swamp School Fields

first_imgMIDDLETOWN – The Middletown Board of Edu­cation and Township Com­mittee gathered last week at Nut Swamp Elementary School to break ground on the first of two new artificial turf fields.“This is a great day for Middletown Township, the school district and the local sports community,” Mayor Gerard P. Scharfenberger said. “This new field will be invaluable to our school children and many active athletic leagues.”The field, which is located at Nut Swamp Elementary School adjacent to Normandy Park, will be open to students and local athletic leagues for football, soccer, field hockey, lacrosse and other sports. Construction is slated to begin in early July and scheduled to be completed before school starts, the mayor said.The project is the first step in a recent shared-services agreement struck between Middletown Township and the public school district for joint maintenance and periodic upgrades of township and school athletic fields over the next decade.By collaborating on field upgrades and maintenance, township and the school district expect to save on personnel costs, purchase more materials in bulk and more efficiently maintain fields on a regular basis, Scharfenberger said.Under the agreement, the school district contributed $250,000 to the $1.16 million project at Nut Swamp School. The municipal share will be paid for with increases to recreation fees that were approved last year. The township will handle issuing permits to use the field, Township Administrator Anthony Mercantante said.The artificial turf will not need to be watered or cut, requiring less regular maintenance and less expense than traditional grass, Mercantante said.A second artificial turf field will be built on the north end of town, possibly at Thorne Middle School and Harmony Elementary School, which are adjacent to each other. That field is expected to be constructed in 2014, Mercantante said.last_img read more

Sanitizing Genocide: Media Still Excuses Abortion

first_imgThe intentional killing of human life by the millions should rank as one of modern society’s greatest evils, yet the media continue to not only rationalize it, but advocate it.Even the left felt uncomfortable last week when ‘comedian’ Michelle Wolf told jokes about abortion, saying “Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it” and “When you do try it, really knock it. You know, you’ve got to get that baby out of there.” Conservatives and Christians, naturally, were outraged and grief-stricken that anyone would display such shameless flippancy about killing what she acknowledged was a “baby” in the womb. The serious mainstream science media may not tell jokes, but they treat the unborn with similar disregard.Some women feel grief after an abortion, but there’s no evidence of serious mental health issues (Medical Xpress). The question before the public should be, “Is this baby a human life? Is this baby a person?” Leftist abortion advocates, like Kirsten Black at The Conversation, always focus on the mother’s “mental health” instead, as a distraction from the big question. “Overall they found that abortion does not increase a woman’s risk of experiencing symptoms of post-traumatic stress, depression or anxiety,” Black writes. “In fact, those who are denied abortion initially have higher levels of anxiety than women obtaining an abortion.” But can any study, or any statistic, justify what abortionists do to the life inside her womb? See the videos that demonstrate the practices at AbortionProcedures.com, where a former abortion doctor shows what he himself did to hundreds of unborn babies.Women should have right to reject pregnancy, experts say (Science Daily). Well, if “experts” say something, it must be authoritative, right? Remember, we’re talking about individual human beings with their own bodies, brains, and genes (half from the father) being snuffed out. Listen to the “experts” in this article:“We emphasise that to accept that abortion should be decriminalised for this reason is not to adopt the view that abortion is morally acceptable, but rather to recognise that there is no basis for the law to criminalise abortion as an act which has not conclusively been demonstrated to be morally unacceptable.”Not demonstrated by whom? Millions of people believe abortion is morally unacceptable! How can Dr Andrew McGee presume to speak for them? One can imagine similar arguments being used by “experts” in Nazi Germany to justify what they did. McGee’s use of “should” is his own attempt to impose his own morality on everyone else. And aren’t leftists the very ones who complain about Christians and conservatives trying to shove their morality down other people’s throats? When, oh, when, will Science Daily or any of the other “mainstream” science news outlets give a voice to the pro-life side?Iowa governor signs nation’s strictest abortion law (Barbara Rodriguez, Associated Press). Anything printed with the Associated Press seal of approval on it is bound to be republished verbatim by  practically every mainstream news service in the world, so watch for the spin here.The bill signing came shortly after the Iowa affiliates of Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union warned that they would sue the governor if she signed the bill, which the Republican-controlled Legislature approved during after-hours votes earlier in the week.“We will challenge this law with absolutely everything we have on behalf of our patients because Iowa will not go back,” Suzanna de Baca, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, said in a statement.Although the article provides a few token statements from pro-lifers, Rodriguez clearly gives more space and passion to critics of the bill, including the largest abortion provider in the country, Planned Parenthood: you know, the ones who make money selling body parts of aborted babies to conscience-deprived secular scientists.Other Leftist Propaganda Posing as ScienceStatus threat, not economic hardship, explains the 2016 presidential vote (PNAS). Diana Mutz gets prime time in the most prestigious science journal in America to promote her own leftist opinion. If you voted for Donald Trump, she argues in a pseudo-scientific political post, you’re probably just a white person afraid of losing your traditional position in an evolving society: “changing preferences were related to changes in the party’s positions on issues related to American global dominance and the rise of a majority–minority America: issues that threaten white Americans’ sense of dominant group status.” When did science journals turn into political propaganda for the left? These days, it’s almost unimaginable that a conservative scholar would get a hearing on this prime platform.Leftists are life-despisers and totalitarians. They want to drastically reduce human presence on this planet. Abortion is just one facet of their misanthropic mindset; eugenics is another. They also want to force everyone to think like they do, and they will scream hate speech at anyone who disagrees. They are masters of euphemism and misdirection (hear Michael Knowles explain this at Prager University, “Control the Words, Control the Culture.”). Lovers of Darwin, they are the intellectual and societal heirs of Karl Marx, whose 200th birthday yesterday was NOT an occasion for celebration (Breitart 1, Breitbart 2). The solution? Keep leftists out of office, don’t ever trust them with power, and do the right thing even when they scream.(Visited 358 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Enlist E3 soybeans now available for the Eastern Corn Belt

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Seed Consultants, serving Eastern Corn Belt growers, is excited to offer Enlist E3 soybeans, available now for 2019 planting.Enlist E3 soybeans offer one of the most advanced soybean technologies on the market. With tolerance to 2,4-D choline in Enlist herbicides, glyphosate and glufosinate, Enlist E3 soybeans provide a new standard for weed control and yield potential.“Our growers expect performance from their fields, even if they’re constantly fighting tough weeds,” said Daniel Call, general manager of Seed Consultants. “I think they’ll be really pleased with Enlist E3 soybeans. The genetics, agronomics and weed control are outstanding.”As part of the Enlist weed control system, Enlist E3 soybeans can be sprayed with Enlist Duo and Enlist One herbicides to manage tough and resistant weeds. Both herbicides feature 2,4-D choline with Colex-D technology to provide superior weed control with minimized potential for physical drift and near-zero volatility. Enlist herbicides reduce drift by as much as 90 percent compared with traditional 2,4-D and are up to 96 percent less volatile than 2,4-D ester.“Marestail, pigweed and ragweed plague soybean fields here in the Eastern Corn Belt,” Call said. “I’ve seen Enlist herbicides in action on these weeds and they really work. When farmers can control weeds, it allows their soybeans to thrive. That’s the kind of performance Seed Consultants delivers to our customers.”Seed consultants is pleased to offer 7 Enlist E3 soybean varieties for 2019 planting. All varieties have been hand-selected for performance in the Eastern Corn Belt.
