I think there are a lot of opportunities. We’ve talked many times as franchises in IPL and with BCCI about having two seasons because we’ve also always felt that 10 months of the year having nothing is not good. I don’t think there’s going to be an absorption issue. I think it’s going to be appreciated by the fans. Cricket is going to be bigger than ever, it’s growing bigger than ever and it’s going to have great viewership.”He further added, “Thirteen years ago when IPL started, five-day matches were dying, one-day matches were dying and then came T20, everyone said cricket is dead. I feel Cricket has never been more alive. The number of players who now have an opportunity to take up cricket as a profession, the number of sponsors who now have an opportunity and remember that IPL deals and cricket deals comprise about 25% to 30% of the entire sponsorship in the whole of India, all advertising and marketing spend. So, it is something that needs to be reckoned with. So, I certainly don’t think it’s an issue. Unfortunately, COVID is going to continue and cricket will help us take our mind of things and looking forward to an IPL 14 sooner rather than later.”IPL 2020 : Ness Wadia thanks Sourav Ganguly, Jay Shah for holding IPL 2020 among all Covid-19 related challengesThe initial discussion talked about how is the feeling that the IPL is finally taking place and Wadia said, “I think a lot of skeptics thought it would never take place. I was not one of them, knew all along that it would happen. I had full faith in the BCCI and the IPL that it would happen. I think there were a lot of two and fro with the ICC as well. And I, I’m very happy that it’s taking place in Dubai it’s a good hunting ground for us and I truly believe that the BCCI gets a lot of stick and I think there’s a lot of negativity which people talk about BCCI, it’s okay to be negative in some things but then at least applaud when people do positive things. And I take a bow to the IPL – Sourav Ganguly, Jay Shah, Brijesh Patel and the others who are involved in getting the IPL up and running and it’s just incredible. It’s just incredible what they’ve done to pull it off, the safety and security protocols are amazing in the bubbles. We’ve had a lot to learn from other leagues and they’ve learned.”The KXIP co-owner also voiced his opinion on the IPL being held in the UAE giving an analogy, “In every business, you have a good year and a bad year and ups and downs. And I think this is one of those years where one has to look at the glass half full. It’s better than it’s happening than it’s not. We’re very excited and happy to have the IPL.”With the new normal in place and restrictions at the stadiums, the owners are having a new experience being at the ground to which Wadia said, “It’s a different experience and quite intriguing when you are in a stadium and there are no fans around. It just means we have to shout more and cheer more. We have to adapt and adjust and that is what we are doing. It might be pretty peaceful actually from an owner’s perspective because for a lot of owners, when you go to your home grounds you have so many fans asking you things, wanting things and it might be pretty peaceful from our perspective, also. You have a more relaxed time and you get to enjoy the game and focus more. Here you have a restriction of eight people, so it is a different experience. I wouldn’t say its better but it’s unique and more peaceful for sure.”IPL 2020 : We are not worried too much about IPL sponsorships at this stage says WadiaHe also commented on the discussions doing rounds in the media around IPL sponsorship saying, “This year it’s the sponsorship, next year might be something else that’s just what IPL brings.”He further elaborated on the matter of sponsorship saying, “I think it’s been difficult for most of the franchises, some are exceptions. It’s difficult to deal with sponsors every year, this year it is a little bit more difficult. It’s been a tough year and it’s been a hit for everyone. Like I said, if IPL hadn’t happened, then it will be a zero-sum game so anything is better than zero, right?”Wadia believes that the IPL will certainly lift the sentiments of the businesses and people in general. “Everyone’s going to watch the IPL from the youngest kid to the oldest grandmother, grandfather. And that’s what IPL brings you know so it’s going to be really, to my mind, it’s going to change the sentiment. Be it the Prime Minister albeit down to the person who drives your car everyone’s going to be watching. So you know the whole of India, and the rest of the world is going to watch.”Finally, the discussion came on KXIP and Glenn Maxwell in particular. He said, “Maxwell brings tremendous amounts to the game and I think he’s long overdue. And I think it’s going to be a good year for him, as he said, “Playing pace better. I have more confidence” and it’s all about confidence. He is a very important part of our team and of course, he is an entertainer, on his given day and when in his element he is beautiful to watch.”furthermore, on the show, he spoke about Anil Kumble and KL Rahul saying, “As far as Anil Kumble and KL Rahul are concerned it’s good that they’re from Karnataka, I think it’s very important. I think we’ve got a lot of wonderful players from Karnataka and across India and the world. I think we’ve got an exceedingly well-balanced team, with an exceedingly well-balanced director and coach in Anil Kumble, his experience, his respect, his wisdom just stands out. He is a phenomenal bowler, phenomenal leader and a nice person. He is humble, simple, to the point and very professional.”For KL Rahul he said, “As one can recollect we went very strong for KL Rahul in the auctions. Show me a more versatile player in Indian cricket at the moment. He can open, he can go down to number four, and he can go down to number six. At every point of that chain of the 11, to add he is also a wicketkeeper. He is a captain in the making, as he said recently “I have watched Virat, thinking like a captain.” And when you’re a wicket keeper you automatically think a lot, so it’s going to be amazing. Our role is just to encourage them and give them more confidence.” Euro 2020, Italy vs Wales LIVE: Verratti returns for Italy, Ampadu starts for Wales, check full line-ups; Follow Live Updates, By Kunal Dhyani – September 28, 2020 Cricket Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Cricket Cricket Previous articleIPL 2020: Rahul Tewatia asked for recognition last IPL season, earns his moment in the sun this yearNext articleE gamers unhappy as Jio blocks Twitch for sake of IPL 2020 Live streaming Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

Peter Stephens | Saturday, 4th July, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE Have £5k to invest in an ISA today? I’d buy bargain FTSE 100 stocks to retire earlycenter_img Individuals with £5k available to invest today may shun FTSE 100 shares in favour of lower-risk assets such as a Cash ISA due to the uncertain economic outlook.However, investing in undervalued shares could be a sound means of generating high returns that enables you to enjoy an earlier retirement.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…Undervalued businesses may be well placed to benefit from a likely economic recovery that could catalyse your ISA’s performance in the coming years.Bargain FTSE 100 sharesBuying bargain FTSE 100 shares today could enable you to benefit from the stock market’s likely long-term recovery. The track record of equity markets shows that they have always experienced periods of disappointment and decline. However, those periods have never lasted in perpetuity. As such, purchasing stocks while they are cheap could be a means of obtaining wide margins of safety that can produce relatively high returns over the long run.Of course, simply buying cheap shares may be an insufficient means of generating high returns in the coming years. Some companies may be trading at low prices because of weak financial positions or highly challenging trading prospects. This could mean that they fail to survive a period of economic weakness.As such, it is important to assess the quality of FTSE 100 shares, as well as their price, before buying them. This could help you to avoid weaker businesses that may fail to fully recover lost ground over recent months, and to focus your capital on those companies that offer the best mix of quality and low prices at the present time.Relative appealUndervalued FTSE 100 shares could produce significantly higher returns than other assets over the coming years. For example, Cash ISAs may struggle to deliver positive returns after inflation is factored-in. Low interest rates may remain in place for a significant amount of time, as policymakers seek to support the economy’s recovery. This could mean that your spending power fails to improve from holding cash, which will not aid you in your aim to retire early.Poor return prospects for other assets may mean that demand for shares increases. This could help to push stock prices higher, as investors gradually shift their focus towards obtaining an attractive return from their capital as an economic recovery takes hold. Therefore, the prospect of a recovery for the FTSE 100 could be relatively strong, and may gain momentum as investor sentiment improves.Starting todayAlthough buying FTSE 100 shares today may be a tough decision for investors due to the risks it faces at the present time, doing so could improve your long-term financial prospects. Many attractive large-cap shares with solid financial positions appear to be undervalued at the present time. The stock market’s track record suggests that buying them now is likely to produce high returns as equity markets gradually recover from the recent market crash. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Yes, gas prices have shot up in the last week

first_imgAccording to GasBuddy, much of the jump at the pump was fueled by rising oil prices on optimism of a future production cut, which may be led by OPEC. A barrel of West Texas Intermediate crude oil jumped to nearly $48 per barrel while Brent crude oil traded at $50 per barrel. However to start this week, the optimism appears to be fading, with crude oil prices struggling to maintain their recent bull run. In addition, CFTC data showed short interest fading, signaling that there are fewer buyers interested at current prices.Last week’s Energy Information Administration report didn’t help either, showing a combined 5.2 million barrel decline between oil inventories and gasoline inventories. Meanwhile, some refinery issues have crept to the surface out West and in the Midwest. BP’s Whiting, Indiana refinery has been struggling for weeks with a water treatment facility slashing capacity. Problems at a Valero refinery in Wilmington, CA and several malfunctions and fires at Gulf Coast refiners has led to less production in those regions as well, impacting gasoline prices.

This residence for a couple and their two children is located in a housing development dotted with lots that have remained unsold for many years. The design process began with the question of whether it might be possible to maintain a certain degree of privacy on this particular lot while at the same time creating a sense of connection with the surroundings. Could we somehow dissolve the property line by deliberately entwining green areas throughout the lot? That was the image in our minds when we began.Save this picture!© Katsuya. TairaFirst, rather than constructing a wall around the property, we decided to try creating a place-based boundary similar to a tree-lined street between the house and the rest of the property, and by doing so to evoke a feeling of generosity toward the surrounding area. We ended up constructing a ring shaped hill with a path around the top. This maintained privacy while loosely connecting the property with its surroundings. The house is situated within this ring. In two places, the ring pierces the residence, connecting it to the exterior. The approach to the residence is via the path around the ring-shaped hill.Save this picture!© Katsuya. TairaSave this picture!© Katsuya. TairaThe building is divided into four volumes: the living room, the children’s room, the kitchen, and the bathroom and master bedroom, with the dining room at the center. Separating the various parts of the home in this way allows each section to be connected to the exterior, with an outdoor space inside the ring attached to each. The plan is to eventually plant gardens in each of these spaces to create a variety of views from inside the house. The area between the ring and the property line will also be landscaped, further changing the scenery both inside and out and creating a space that is open to the surrounding environment.Save this picture!© Katsuya.

The money raised will enable us to help more families be together when they really need to be, by providing dedicated accommodation close to the hospital. This is a vital resource, enabling parents and carers to be at their child’s bedside within minutes, at whatever time of the day and night. We couldn’t be happier to be involved in this campaign and hope everyone enjoys the advertisement and supports this special partnership.” The 2016 John Lewis Christmas advert includes support for The Wildlife Trusts The advert tells the story of Dave, a hard-working and devoted dad, who comes up with an ingenious plan to make sure he can be with his family for Christmas. It is told through a song, ‘The Greatest Gift For Christmas Is Me’, voiced by British actor James Corden.How does the ad campaign raise funds for GOSH?The advert itself of course does not raise funds and there is no call to give to the charity within it. It is the related products for the ad that will generate income for the charity. All profits from the sale of the specially created Gingerbread ‘Dave’ (£1) and The Greatest Gift film animation kit (£5) will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.From 21st November, customers will also have the option to make a 20p donation at the till, or more if specifically requested, with all the proceeds going to the charity.This is the first time full colour 3D printed faces have ever been used in animation production in the UK.Sarah Kilmartin, Head of Broadcast Comms, Sainsbury’s, said:“Christmas is for Sharing has been a constant theme for our Christmas ads for the last three years and it continues to have real resonance for our customers… Supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity felt like a very natural extension of this as we know that the families at the hospital face more difficulties than most to spend time together as a family, at Christmas and all year round.” Advertisement  267 total views,  1 views today About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Ag Economy Barometer Shows Dip in Sentiment in February

first_img Ag Economy Barometer Shows Dip in Sentiment in February SHARE By Andy Eubank – Mar 5, 2019 SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Ag Economy Barometer Shows Dip in Sentiment in February Facebook Twitter Ag Economy Barometer Shows Dip in Sentiment in FebruaryThe new Purdue and CME Group report measuring the sentiment about the ag economy has been released, and the February barometer is down seven points from January to a reading of 136. Both the Index of Current Conditions and the Index of Future Expectations declined, but the current conditions index was most significant.Jim Mintert, the barometer’s principal investigator and director of the Purdue Center for Commercial Agriculture said fewer farmers said they expect their operation to grow in the future compared to their statements a year ago. He says that could be a sign of increasing financial stress.Considering the current trade war with China and soybean price erosion, Mintert says producers again were asked how their 2019 soybean planted acres might compare to last year.“We focused on producers who told us they planted soybeans last year,” he said. “Twenty-three percent of those producers indicated they plan to reduce their soybean acreage in 2019 vs. 2018. We followed up those producers and asked by how much they plan to reduce their soybean acreage, and two-thirds of them said that they plan to reduce soybean acreage by more than ten percent, a rather substantial decline in acreage.”Mintert says there were revealing responses when farmers were asked what kind of farm operation growth they expected in the next five years.“Fifty percent of the producers in our survey said they have no plans to grow or might actually reduce the size of their farming operation,” he said. “On the other hand though, there is a group of people who are planning fairly rapid growth. Thirty-seven percent said that they plan to increase the size of their operation on an annual basis of five percent or more, and importantly, five percent of those producers said they actually plan to increase the size of their operation by more than fifteen percent per year, very rapid growth plans on the part of those farming operations.”In the new barometer, producers were slightly more optimistic about evaluating farmland as a long-term investment and the future growth of agricultural exports. They do remain concerned about risk with marketing risk the most critical to their farming operation.Four hundred producers are surveyed each month, and the full report is here.
