European Super League: ESL chairman says, ‘current Champions league revenue model…

first_imgEuropean Super League Football – Who are the 12 ‘founding members’?Milan, Arsenal, Atlético Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Inter, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Tottenham.European Super League Football – What about the big German and French clubs?German & French Clubs are yet to join the break-away Super-League. Be it last year’s Champions League & Bundesliga winner Bayern Munich or French champions Paris Saint Germain, none of them have joined the breakaway league as yet   They have said that they are currently not interesting in joining the project. PSG is currently in the semi-finals of Champions League and will play Manchester City. European Super League Football – Will the 12 clubs leave their domestic leagues?At the moment they are hoping to remain playing in those competitions but the leagues have all issued strong-worded statements condemning the clubs and the new breakaway league.European Super League Football – How much money is involved, who is funding the SUPER-LEAGUE? The monies projected in the European Super League is phenomenal, much more than what clubs currently make by playing Champions League or any other competition. The statement from the 12 clubs said: “Founding clubs will receive an amount of €3.5bn solely to support their infrastructure investment plans and to offset the impact of the Covid pandemic.” It added: “The new annual tournament will provide significantly greater economic growth and support for European football … and [solidarity payments] are expected to be in excess of €10bn during the course of the initial commitment period of the clubs.”European Super League Football – How would it work, what is the format of the competition?There would be 20 participating clubs, with 15 founding clubs and a qualifying mechanism for a further five teams to qualify annually based on achievements in the prior season.European Super League Football – Start Dates, schedules and when would matches be played?There would be midweek fixtures with all participating clubs hoping to compete in their respective national leagues. There would be two groups of 10, playing home and away fixtures, with the top three in each group automatically qualifying for the quarter-finals. Teams finishing fourth and fifth would then compete in a two-legged play-off for the remaining quarter-final positions. A two-leg knockout format would be used to reach the final at the end of May, which would be staged as a single fixture at a neutral venue.The clubs said in their statement that they were looking to start the competition in August.European Super League Football: What did the organisers claim?Florentino Pérez, president of Real Madrid and the first chairman of the Super League, said: “We will help football at every level and take it to its rightful place in the world. Football is the only global sport in the world with more than four billion fans and our responsibility as big clubs is to respond to their desires.” Perez’s vice-chairs will be Joel Glazer of Manchester United and Andrea Agnelli of Juventus. Glazer said: “By bringing together the world’s greatest clubs and players to play each other throughout the season, the Super League will open a new chapter for European football, ensuring world-class competition and facilities, and increased financial support for the wider football pyramid.”European Super League Football – How FIFA, UEFA & Others are reacting to the development? There has been widespread criticism at the idea. European football’s governing body UEFA have expressed their disapproval, claiming players participating in the Super League could be “banned from all UEFA and FIFA competitions, European or International level.”FIFA also condemned the proposals. “FIFA can only express its disapproval to a “closed European breakaway league” outside of the international football structures and not respecting the aforementioned principles,” it said in a statement.“FIFA always stands for unity in world football and calls on all parties involved in heated discussions to engage in calm, constructive and balanced dialogue for the good of the game and in the spirit of solidarity and fair play.Gary Neville, the former Manchester United defender summing up most people’s feelings when he said: ‘I’m disgusted with Manchester United and Liverpool the most. They’re breaking away to a competition they can’t be relegated from? It’s an absolute disgrace. It’s pure greed, they’re impostors. The owners of Man United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City have nothing to do with football in this country. They’re an absolute joke. Time has come now to have independent regulators to stop these clubs from having the power base.

Otherwise, football will die.”On Sunday, 12 of Europe’s biggest clubs released a statement that they will be part of the newly proposed league. England’s Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur had joined Italy’s AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus, plus Spain’s Atlético Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid as the founding members of the competition. European Super League – Will it take off without agreement with UEFA? Pérez admitted that the new league is unlikely to start next season if no agreement is ultimately reached with European football’s governing body, Uefa. He added that extra impetus has been added to the ESL project by football’s financial struggles during Covid-19.“We are all going through a very difficult situation,” Pérez said.“When you don’t have revenue, the only way to change that is to attempt to have more competitive games, more attractive games. Football has to evolve, just like businesses have to evolve and everyone has to evolve. Football needs to adapt. We felt that we needed to change something to help make football more attractive.”He continued: “With the way revenues are now in the Champions League, all clubs will die. The big ones, medium ones and small ones. By 2024, when this new format is supposed to start, the clubs will all be gone.”Reasons given by Perez why ESL is necessity?– Pérez also maintained the revenues generated by the ESL will provide benefits across the wider football ecosystem, adding that the “money will end up reaching everyone.”– ESL project is thought to be driven in part by a desire by the clubs to take control of the media rights and sell directly to fans through in-house streaming channels.– The Champions League is attractive from the quarterfinals according to Perez. We play against small clubs that aren’t attractive. Young people prefer to entertain themselves with other things. But if we play all season, five games on Tuesday, five on Wednesday, that would be unstoppable.– The 15 clubs playing each other every week would bring in money. That’s the greatest show in the world, there’s nothing like it. A Real Madrid-Manchester (United) or a Barcelona-Milan game is more attractive than Manchester (United) against a small club.– “What does the world demand? We have fans in Singapore, in China, across the world, you see that on social media, the followers we have. That’s what brings in money.”– Meanwhile, the ESL masterplan claims it will provide “a sustainable and competitive environment” for the whole football pyramid by offering more than three times the level of solidarity payments to smaller clubs than currently exists.– According to the ESL plans, solidarity payments would be in excess of $10bn (€8.3bn) and would be paid out over 23 years.

(Graphic: Business Wire) Since 2018, Makebot has published a chatbot trend report annually to raise awareness on chatbots and show ways forward to industry professionals. In the 2021 edition, the company selected five countries in Asia including Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Japan, and Korea to highlight the perception toward chatbots in these countries. According to the report, 66% of the survey respondents in the five countries said that they had heard about chatbots. Of these, 85% answered that they had used chatbot services in the past six months. Most of the respondents also replied that they were willing to use contactless services even after the COVID-19 crisis is over, which indicates that the pandemic was an important motivation to try contactless services. As to a question asking whether robots would take away jobs from humans, most respondents were skeptical about the gloomy prospect and instead suggested an opinion that digitized chatbots are not competitors but helpers for humans. In addition, more than 50% of the respondents said “this is a perfect time” to a question “when would be the best time to introduce chatbots in your organization?” A bulk of them also reported that companies that have introduced chatbots are viewed as successful in digitizing their business and thus are likely to reap the benefit of improving their corporate image. Makebot provides an AI-powered chatbot service. With a single chatbot, it can link with various social networking platforms including Facebook, WhatsApp, and Line. Makebot can also offer multi-language services on its chatbot. Last year, the company launched AI chatbot services for the largest K-pop entertainment platform (Weverse) and Korean Air.

Lathis Used Against Vehicles To Check For Coronavirus, Says Police; Telangana HC Expresses Surprise

For, in order to check the presence of coronavirus, there is no need “to use the lathies. Therefore, the complete report, with regard to the alleged incident, needs to be submitted by the Police before this Court”, said the bench.The Court directed the state police to submit the injury reports of injured persons, their statements, if any recorded by the Police, and further demanded to be informed with regard to the progress made in the departmental enquiries, which have been initiated against the delinquent police personnel. The Chief Justice-led bench, moreover, directed the production of the statements of victims recorded by the police, wherein allegedly the victims have denied the occurrence of the incident. The Commissioner of Police, Hyderabad City, told the division bench note that one who was allegedly was assaulted by the Police, in fact, was not assaulted.Instead he fell down while he was running away after noticing the police personnel approaching his area. But surprisingly, his injury report has not been submitted along with the counter-affidavit, the Court noted. Likewise, although it is claimed that in another instance, a man was beaten up by the Police, the Police claims that while seeing the police personnel, the victim tried to run away, While running away, he fell into a manhole, thereby sustaining a fracture on his right leg. But even here, his injury report has not been filed. “Interestingly, although the Police claim that he was shifted to the Osmania General Hospital through escort HG-174, the medical report issued by the Osmania General Hospital has not been filed along with the counter-affidavit”, remarked the bench comprising Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan and Justice B Vijaysen Reddy.”Similarly, it is alleged that the Police had assaulted a handicapped person. Yet, the Police claims that he is a regular violator of the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act and as many as thirteen Traffic Challans are hanging against him. Yet, none of these Traffic Challans have been submitted along with the counter-affidavit”, commented the Court. In yet another episode, it is alleged that one man was brutally attacked by the police personnel of Golconda Police Station. Due to the brutal attack, he has suffered thirty-five stitches on his face, and also suffered hairline fracture. According to the Police, he was intercepted by them as he was driving the two wheeler without wearing a mask, and without wearing a helmet. Moreover, an altercation had taken place between the police personnel and the victim, and later he was identified under another name. During the altercation, accidentally, the lathi hit his spectacles and it caused a bleeding injury under his right eye. Moreover, according to the Police, immediately, he was taken to Olive Hospital, Nanal Nagar. “However, the injury report has not been produced before this Court. Obviously, a single injury to right eye cannot cause an injury requiring thirty-five stitches, and a hairline fracture. Thus, it is obvious, that the correct facts have not been mentioned in the counter-affidavit. Furthermore, although it is claimed that (the concerned police official) was suspended by order dated 29.04.2020, and a detailed enquiry has been ordered against him, neither the copy of suspension order, nor the further development in the departmental enquiry has been submitted along with the counter-affidavit”, said the bench. Noting that a video circulating over the internet shows a Sub-Inspector of Police abusing the local persons, who had stepped out for groceries, the Court said that though the said allegation has been admitted in the counter- affidavit, neither the name of the delinquent police personnel has been revealed, nor the final outcome of the departmental enquiry initiated against the delinquent officer has been mentioned. Finally,  According to the counter-affidavit, the Court observed that a man who was allegedly beaten up by the police personnel at Shastripuram area, has denied the said incident. Yet, the counter-affidavit does not contain any statement by him in order to support the claim made by the Police in the counter-affidavit that he had denied such incident. “Moreover, it is, rather, surprising that the Police has not further investigated into the source of information with regard to the alleged incident”, said the bench. Similarly, although The Hindu English Daily, dated 24.03.2020 had, reported that one Mr, Ravi Reddy, a Journalist, was assaulted by two Sub- Inspectors of Police and three Constables of Begumpet Police Station, although the Police claims that Mr. Ravi Reddy has denied the said assault, the said statement has not been produced before this Court to buttress the claim made in the counter-affidavit. The Court also noted that in several cases, where even the charge memo has been issued to the delinquent officer, there is no information as to the final outcome of the enquiry, and in others, even the victims have not been identified. Click here to download orderRead Order Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Welsh government urges agents to report competitors ignoring lockdown

first_imgThe Welsh government has urged estate agents to report competitors who break the lockdown rules on viewings or branch openings, it has been revealed.In an update sent to ARLA Propertymark, Ministers in Wales have said agents should contact their local trading standards or environmental health department who will then investigate any potential breaches.Welsh agents have now face a nearly four week longer lockdown than their English counterparts.As we have reported now on two occasions, some Welsh agents are becoming frustrated by the wait and, in a bid to keep their businesses alive, trying to keep a few transaction ticking over.The Welsh government has reminded agents that the lockdown guidelines remain in force and that while virtual viewings can take place, only house moves that have to proceed contractually can go ahead.Propertymark says it has provided members with resources and information to comply with the rules and raised issues with the Welsh Government about non-compliance.In the meantime, Welsh agents will have to wait until the 18th June to find out if the rules are to be relaxed, when the country’s First Minister Mark Drakeford is due to give his next update.Fines in Wales for non-compliance with the guidelines in Wales range from a £60 fixed penalty up to £1,920 for repeat and serious offenders.lockdown Mark Drakeford propertymark Wales welsh June 12, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Queer bop rebrand sparks student criticism

first_imgThe costume competition this year will be “400 years of queer icons”, based on the Alternative Miss World competition, the recent Queer Icons exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery and the celebrations of 400 years of Wadham. Jebb said the theme leaves students “plenty of scope for some original and amazing costumes.”Costumes suggested in the proposal include James Dean, Oscar Wilde, Dusty Springfield and Joan of Arc.One student’s response to such suggestions was less than welcoming. “All their examples of possible costumes are fully clothed, where is the fun in that? No vulgarity? That sucks.”The current Wadham Student Union President has encouraged students to accept the changes or risk cancelling the event. “As students, we do not want to abuse the trust that the college has given us to have a well-run event that is safe, celebrates LGBTQ issues, and is lot of fun for everyone. If it seems that we cannot, Queer Festival will not happen again.”Criticism has not been universal. OUSU’s LGBT rep, Jasper Minton-Taylor, argues that the proposals will help to clarify what Queer Bop is all about. “In recent years… it would seem that the nature of the party got slightly out of hand in matters such as the nature of the costumes. What was unfortunate were the connotations attached to ‘queer’ as a result. Thus I fully commend the queer bop committee for creating some guidelines”Another Wadham student argued many of the changes were positive, saying, “I think it’s a good thing that there is much more emphasis on LGBT themes and it being an all-day event means more partying time…a lot of work and effort has been put into the event and it looks really good – if a bit less debauched. Time will tell.”Jebb confirms changes were made in conjunction with OUSU Queer Council and LGBT Soc and said they had been “extremely supportive of [Wadham’s] efforts.” He also said one of Wadham’s Fellows is also on the committee for Queer Festival and that Wadham have been “really supportive” of the event. The decision of the Queer Fest organisers to ban “inappropriate” costumes as part of efforts to distance the event from what they describe as a “salubrious reputation” has sparked outrage amongst the student body.Wadham’s infamous Queer Bop has been completely overhauled this year and rebranded as Queer Fest.The changes come after a report last year by Will McCallum, the then Student Union President, who identified a number of damaging incidents at former Queer Bops, including a homophobic attack, hospitalisations of attendees and the attendance of strippers.In a move angering students, Queer Fest organisers have asked those attending not to wear “nappies, fig leaves, nipple tassels, G-strings or anything you wouldn’t be happy to have your mother send you off in.”An email warns attendees that they must know “where to draw the line” and that anyone wearing something “deliberately offensive” will be turned away.A Wadham student commented, “I don’t like the fact that it is being made to be tamer than any normal bop, with all these regulations and threats of being kicked out… you can’t wear anything ‘inappropriate’ – I mean what does that even mean?”Angry students have been sharing their frustration with the plans on Facebook. Emily Ludolf, a 3rd year, said, “I am advocating a mass-strip half way through, if everyone does what can the man do?”The status of David Roberts, another 3rd year reads, “Queer Festival- another nail into the heart of fun.”Further changes include making the event longer, serving food and erecting tents where students can rest if they feel unwell.Ciaran Jebb, one of Wadham’s Entz reps, confirmed that Queer Bop has been reinvented as Queer Fest this year and insisted it would be “a brand new exciting, inclusive and innovative celebration to provide a fantastic culmination to Wadham’s Queer Week.”last_img read more
