The only change would be that as the tournament moves to UAE – home & away concept will not apply to IPL 2020.  Also Read : https://www.insidesport.co/ipl-2020-going-uae-bcci-to-now-work-on-government-permissions/ The BCCI is yet to finalize the exact schedule and format for the 13th edition of IPL. Now the question will be how the schedule and format will be finalized ?  Cricket The 13th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) is all set to move to the United Arab Emirates. But few questions on the IPL 2020 schedule, format, venues and exact timelines still remain. How and when these questions will be answered. We will take you through each and every aspect about the IPL 2020 and tell you all the latest updates & developments related to it. IPL 2020 : First thing first – Is it confirmed that IPL 2020 is happening ?Yes, it is confirmed that IPL 2020 season will be conducted this year. But it has to meet two conditions.  ICC WTC Final: 10 years of Virat Kohli’s Test career, 10 best moments of India’s greatest Test skipper Also Read : https://www.insidesport.co/ipl-2020-chartered-planes-hotel-selection-ipl-franchises-begin-prep-for-uae/ Cricket Cricket TAGSIndian Premier LeagueIPL 2020IPL 2020 DatesIPL in UAEIPL Schedule & Format SHARE As soon as the ICC announce the postponement of the T20 World Cup, immediately IPL Governing Council (GC) meeting will be called by the BCCI. The IPL GC headed by Brijesh Patel will decide the exact schedule and format of IPL 2020. The view point of the official broadcasters Star India will also be sought. Once that is done, the IPL GC will inform the franchise and other stakeholders about the schedules and format for the IPL 2020.  Condition 1 – The first of the two conditions is  that ICC officially announce the postponement of the T20 World Cup. This announcement can come on Monday as ICC Board is scheduled to meet @ 4.30 PM. It is expected that the first condition for IPL 2020 will be fulfilled tom with this announcement.  IPL 2020 : All that you want to know about IPL 2020 dates, schedule and format for this season Cricket Cricket Facebook Twitter Cricket Formula 1 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Virat Kohli completes 10 years in Test Cricket: 10 things you should know about India skipper- check out WI vs SA 2nd Test Day 2 Stumps: West Indies bowled out for 149 runs in 1st innings, SA lead by 149 runs ICC WTC Final, Ind vs NZ Day 3: Can India survive the Kyle Jamieson storm in Southampton?

The situation still stays the same. BCCI has zeroed down on two dates for IPL 2020. The first potential dateline for IPL 2020 will be Sep26th to Nov 7th.  F1 French GP 2021 Live: Max Verstappen to take pole position, Lewis Hamilton second According to the info available with InsideSport, there will not be much of tweaking with the format of IPL 2020. With the postponement of Asia Cup Cricket & T20 World Cup, IPL 2020 will get 2 month free window. So the time constraint will not be the issue for the organizers of IPL 2020.  Condition 2 – Indian Government permissions to take IPL 2020 out of India. BCCI needs permission from the Indian government to move IPL 2020 outside India. Once the ICC announcement comes, BCCI will write to the government for permission to shift the IPL to a foreign country. This is more of a procedural step and the government should grant this permission without any hiccup.  The advantage of going to the UAE, it is being said, is that there won’t be a chance of any PILs and consequent disruption to the league in these volatile pandemic times. Besides, the UAE does not have strict quarantine rules, markets and malls there are already open, offices are having 100 per cent attendance and tourists are being welcomed.  IND vs NZ in WTC Final: India batting coach says, ‘score above 250 on Day 3 would be good’, Kyle Jamieson feels it won’t… ENG W vs IND W Test: Sneh Rana, Shafali Verma shine as one-off Test ends in draw WTC Final LIVE Day 3: Weather forecast again not good, rain & bad-light all set to impact India vs New Zealand Day 3 Cricket Previous articleWhen and Where to watch extreme rules results live in India.Next articleInternational Shooting Sport Federation cancels its 2020 General Assembly Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products. Yes, the BCCI has zeroed down on UAE as host of the IPL 2020. India is going through bad Covid19 pandemic spread and it is unlikely that the Indian cities will recover in time to host IPL 2020.

The second option gives BCCI 7 days extra for IPL 2020. The thought process in the board is that the selected Indian cricket team should directly fly to Australia to participate in the 4 match test series. This option will also mean that their will be less double headers and more matches to be played in the prime time for the Indian audiences.  Post FunThese Twins Were Named “Most Beautiful In The World,” Wait Until You See Them TodayPost Fun|SponsoredSponsoredDefinitionTime Was Not Kind To These 28 CelebritiesDefinition|SponsoredSponsoredPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

Should I buy Blue Prism shares after its recent slump?

first_img The Blue Prism (LSE: PRSM) share price plunged by nearly a quarter this week. Shares in the robotic process automation software business slumped after publishing a lacklustre trading update, which clearly failed to impress the market. However, I think this might be a buying opportunity for savvy long-term investors. 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…Growth marketTo explain why I’m so optimistic about the outlook for this business, I want to start with the outlook for the technology sector. The coronavirus pandemic has revolutionised how we interact with technology. Some analysts have suggested the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of certain technologies by as much as 10 years. I don’t think that’s an overstatement.In some areas such as retail and corporate management, technological solutions have dramatically altered the state of the market, pushing down costs and compressing the time it takes to complete a project. The latter is Blue Prism’s speciality. The company’s primary products are focused on intelligent automation. It claims these tools can help clients improve return on investment and customer retention. These are becoming increasingly important as businesses fight to attract and retain customers in the digital world. And it certainly looks to me as if clients love the products Blue Prism offers. During its financial year to the end of October 2020, revenues increased by 46% year-on-year to £141.4m. Losses also reduced substantially. The group’s adjusted EBITDA loss fell to £40.3m from a loss of £76.1m in the period to 31 October 2019. Blue Prism share price on offerBased on these positive figures, investors might have expected the Blue Prism share price to have jumped. Unfortunately, there was also a nasty revelation in the update. The company has had to restate some of its financials. This means the loss was larger than expected last year and revenues were around £5m lower after the restatement. This was a bad mark against the company. But I’m happy to give the business the benefit of the doubt here. The restatement wasn’t significant in the grand scheme of things. In my opinion, the group’s growth rate is far more critical. And that’s why I’m taking a closer look at the Blue Prism share price after its recent slump.The company is one of London’s few technology champions, and one of the only ways for UK investors to get in on the rapidly growing enterprise software market. As I noted above, I think the outlook for this market is extremely positive. I believe companies with exposure to the sector are likely to generate large total returns for investors in the years ahead. As such, I’d buy the Blue Prism share price after its recent slump as part of a diversified portfolio of enterprise software stocks. I believe by gaining as much exposure to the sector as possible, I can maximise my returns and minimise potential losses in the post-Covid world.

SuperBru Predictions: Aviva Premiership – Round three

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In the sting of things: Wasps provided last weekend’s big result – will you be backing them against Quins? Round Three: Just as some Aviva Premiership clubs are starting to build some momentum for the campaign ahead of them, so some of you prediction gurus are showing some clairvoyant clout. Here are our Superbru predictions for this weekend’s fixtures – see if you can do better.Gloucester vs Exeter ChiefsGloucester produced a stirring comeback to edge a thriller at home to Sale last weekend, and the Cherry and Whites will need to back that up with a win here if they are to rebuild a fortress at Kingsholm. Exeter are looking to respond after a 24-20 defeat to Leicester in Round Two, with the Chiefs squad bolstered by the return of England winger Jack Nowell to the matchday 23. The visitors proved strongest in this fixture last season, and don’t be too surprised to see them do the same again today. Exeter by 5Sale Sharks vs London WelshDanny Cipriani provided a fly-half masterclass last time out, playing a part in three tries for his side and adding a fourth himself. If he can produce a similar performance here, it would go a long way to helping Sale pick up their first win of the season. London Welsh secured a try bonus point in Round Two defeat at Bath, but the focus must turn to their defence this time out – another heavy loss could see them become only the second club in Premiership history to ship 50 points in three consecutive matches (bonus points for naming the other!). Expect the Sharks to get off the mark. Sale by 13Harlequins vs London WaspsThe Stoop faithful will be desperate to see an immediate turnaround after Quins were humbled 39-0 in a dreadful result last Friday. Their visitors come into the game in polar-opposite form, having bested champions Northampton 20-16 at Adams Park. James Haskell put in an outstanding performance in that match, and his back-row clash with the likes of Chris Robshaw and Nick Easter could be explosive. Last weekend’s thrashing could well be the catalyst for a big reaction from the hosts. Harlequins by 9 Newcastle Falcons vs Northampton SaintsNewcastle’s 17-match losing streak would have come to an end last weekend, had Juan Pablo Socino brought his kicking boots to Kingston Park. Instead, five missed kicks meant that run stretched to 18 games, and the visit of the Saints this weekend is hardly a game to provide much respite. Jim Mallinder’s men will want a response to the Wasps defeat last time out, and their sparkling backline will sense an opportunity here. Northampton by 19center_img Bath vs Leicester TigersThis game is being touted as the battle of the fly-halves, as two unbeaten sides face off at the Rec. Bath’s George Ford has kept himself firmly in Stuart Lancaster’s thoughts with his performances so far, whilst Freddie Burns was named man-of-the-match in a controlling display at Exeter last weekend. On top of that clash, this old-school fixture always provides a ferocious battle at the breakdown. This one is likely to be the closest match of the weekend. Bath by 4London Irish vs SaracensIrish face the unenviable task of providing a speedbump to the Saracens juggernaut, with all logic suggesting a win for the visitors as the only foreseeable outcome. Shane Geraghty has been kicking well for the Exiles, but the brutal efficiency, in attack and defence, that Sarries showed last Friday should prove too much. Saracens by 16 With the season in full swing, RW continue to put our (limited) knowledge to the test in the Premiership predictions challenge last_img read more

The Apopka news year in review: The race for Apopka Mayor…

first_img December 28, 2017 at 10:59 am Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Well today is the day! Happy Birthday to me! I am getting better, not just older! I played happy birthday songs off of you tube, for me and my dog. My little boy dog really responded to the chipmunk happy birthday song and sang along with it!….LOL…. He listens intently to any child voices or anything that would be something that children kind of sound like. He is really tuned in to children. Editor’s Note: This is the third in a series of 24 articles published by The Apopka Voice in 2017 that were among the most noteworthy. We will post all of them beginning today and ending on Sunday, December 31st. Then on Monday, January 1st we will poll our readers and let them decide which is Apopka’s biggest story of 2017.Story #3: Kilsheimer and Nelson announced their plans to run for Apopka Mayor within 24 hours of each other, and almost a year in advance of Election Day.Published on March 15th and 16thMarch 15th – Since last summer, the biggest questions in Apopka politics has been if Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson will oppose Joe Kilsheimer for Mayor of Apopka in 2018. That speculation is over.Kilsheimer announced that he will run for re-election at the end of tonight’s city council meeting.Nelson all-but-announced his candidacy this evening on social media; “Big news tomorrow. Press release tomorrow at the Catfish Place 11:00. Everyone invited,” Nelson said on Facebook. “Plenty to do. Will need help from everyone.”Nelson is a first-term County Commissioner for District 2 which represents all of Apopka, Plymouth, Zellwood and parts of Ocoee, Orlando and Eatonville. He is also Vice Mayor of Orange County. Before that, he was in the Florida House representing District 38 for six years (2006-2012) and District 31 for two years (2012-2014). Both districts included Apopka within its borders.He is also the owner of Nelson Insurance Services in Apopka for approximately the past 20 years and Nelson’s Roses for 20 years prior to that. He has lived in the Apopka area since 1958, and at the residence that he annexed into Apopka (in 2016) for 23 years.Apopka Mayor Joe KilsheimerCounty Commissioner Bryan Nelson Reply Please enter your comment! Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Ol’ Roy Moore, isn’t he a “trip”? He has filed a lawsuit alleging voter fraud, because he lost the election. This also causes the Democrat who won, beating him out, to not be allowed to be sworn in, and vote on upcoming legislation, until this matter is resolved, is what I understand. Should we have expected anything different from ol’ Roy Moore? Sounds like a sore loser, a case of sour grapes….Look, when you choose to ride to the polls, to cast your vote for yourself on horseback, wearing a cowboy hat, maybe just maybe, there were some voters who thought he was a little too “wild west” to get their votes, among other things, we had heard about him in the news….and I happen to like horses, just not him! The announcements will set up a Nelson vs. Kilsheimer election that could prove to be both candidate’s greatest challenge. Kilsheimer is an incumbent that has never lost an Apopka municipal election (2 wins no losses) and defeated a five-decade incumbent (Mayor John Land) in 2014. Nelson is also undefeated (5-0 with two elections going unopposed), and has been in an election every two years since 2006.Nelson makes his candidacy for mayor official: Begins campaign with petition driveMarch 16th – With The Catfish Place Restaurant as the backdrop, Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson made his candidacy for mayor of Apopka known to the public. “After several long discussions with my family and close friends, I have decided to run for mayor here in our great city of Apopka,” he told the gathered crowd. “I am excited about the opportunity to serve in a new role and will bring my passion for our city to this campaign. I want to work on what we can do to make Apopka a better place to live, to work and to play.”In his prepared statement, and in his speech, Nelson referenced civility as an issue he would like to change in the current City Council meetings.“We’ve got a lot of opportunities, but we have a lot of challenges as well,” he said. “There has to be civility in leadership. We’ve got to get that back. You can’t let your emotions get in the way of good policy.”He also announced his first campaign event, which will be a kick-off fundraiser to be held at The Catfish Place on Sunday, March 26th from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.Nelson is pursuing a unique strategy by filing by petition instead of paying the filing fee.Bryan Nelson, his wife Debbie (r) and daughter Linda (l) completing the first candidate petitions.“No one has ever qualified for mayor by petition. We are going to be the first. It shows fiscal responsibility and that you have community support.”Nelson is a first-term County Commissioner for District 2 which represents all of Apopka, Plymouth, Zellwood and parts of Ocoee, Orlando and Eatonville. He is also Vice Mayor of Orange County. Before that, he was in the Florida House representing District 38 for six years (2006-2012) and District 31 for two years (2012-2014). Both districts included Apopka within its borders.He is also the owner of Nelson Insurance Services in Apopka for approximately the past 20 years and Nelson’s Roses for 20 years before that. He has lived in the Apopka area since 1958, and at the residence that he annexed into Apopka (in 2016) for 23 years.The announcement sets up an anticipated showdown against Mayor Joe Kilsheimer that could prove to be both candidate’s greatest challenge. Kilsheimer is an incumbent that has never lost an Apopka municipal election (2 wins no losses). He defeated a five-decade incumbent (Mayor John Land) in 2014.Nelson is also undefeated (5-0 with two elections going unopposed), and has been in an election every two years since 2006.Mayor Kilsheimer: “We created more than 1,000 jobs in the projects we approved”March 16th – At last night’s City Council meeting, Mayor Joe Kilsheimer announced his candidacy for re-election to a second term as mayor of Apopka.“I’ll close the Mayor’s Report by ending a lot of speculation. It seems the campaign season is upon us. I had a person tell me they heard I wasn’t running for mayor. So I’m going to announce tonight that I am going to be a candidate for re-election next year. We’ll all look forward to seeing what happens in the coming months.”The Apopka Voice asked Mayor Kilsheimer to tell Apopka voters why he wants to be re-elected. He sent this statement:Mayor Joe Kilsheimer: In his own wordsMayor Joe Kilsheimer Since I took office in 2014, here are the positive changes that have taken place in Apopka:We have created more than 1,000 new jobs in the projects we have approved such as Florida Hospital, Qorvo, the Northwest Distribution Center, Tractor Supply, Raynor Shine and others.We have brought in more than $1.5 million in federal and state grants. With these grant funds, we will this year: 1) Rebuild the community center at Alonzo Williams Park; 2) Rebuild Lake Avenue Park; Install new playground equipment at Kit Land Nelson Park; 4) Hire 10 police officers instead of the five we originally budgeted for and 5) Equip our fire department with more training and safety gear.We have signed a development deal for a new City Center project that will anchor the revitalization of downtown Apopka.We have struck an innovative deal for the construction of a new interchange on S.R. 414 at Marden Road. This will not only improve access to the new hospital but will create new opportunities for investment and jobs for Apopka.We have completed the Grow Apopka 2025 Vision Plan, which solicited the opinions of Apopka residents and laid the foundation for future projects such as the Station Street District, the 6th Street Promenade and the Lake Apopka Restoration Center, or LARC.We have established a summer youth employment program called Apopka Youth Works. This summer, our nationally recognized program will provide summer jobs for 100 young people from low- and moderate-income families.We have launched a new, attractive city website.We have more than tripled the City’s audience on social media platforms, allowing us to communicate with residents on a daily basis.We have established a far more transparent government than Apopka has ever had before. We post the full agenda and city council packet online on the Fridays before a next-Wednesday council meeting.We have updated and modernized numerous systems within the operation of our municipal government, including an overhaul of our IT system to put it on a modern Microsoft platform.We are holding more events than ever at the Apopka Amphitheater, including Charlie Daniels tomorrow night, (March 17th).We can now buy alcohol on Sundays.That is a good beginning, but we have so much more to do. I am running for re-election because I want to finish the job I started: Setting Apopka up for success.Apopka has so much potential. The opening of the Wekiva Parkway is only a few years away. Our job now is to shape our community so that we hold on to the small-town atmosphere we love so much, and prepare for the growth we know lies ahead.With the help and support of Apopka residents, I look forward to carrying out their vision in a second term.

All the time, as they are giving him coverage about his opinions of things regarding our city, CRAs, how the Florida legislators are pushing for bills, he doesn’t like, alcohol subject, medical marijuana subject of dispensaries, and you name it…..they sure are giving him the “big head” so to speak! Enough already! Mama Mia We stopped in at the Wawa last night for my husband to get cigarettes. There was a guy there in front of our truck, along the frontage wall hanging out, so my husband told me to lock the door on our truck, while I waited in the truck for him to come back out of the store. As my husband came back out, there were three girls there and the guy hanging out, and I saw my husband talking to all of them, and when he got back in the truck, I asked him did they ask for money or gas, as I saw him talking to them, and he said no, they didn’t. What he was talking to them about, and why two of the girls screamed and ran into the store real fast was because a big huge field rat with a very longggggggg tail ran right along the wall in the front of Wawa in front of my husband as he came out of the store, and he told the girls to watch out for the big rat! We are used to people asking for money or gas there all the time, but a big field rat was totally unexpected! Where oh where, did that thing come from?????

Andre Esterhuizen and Robert du Preez both suspended for tip tackles

first_imgTuesday Jun 16, 2015 Andre Esterhuizen and Robert du Preez both suspended for tip tackles Young South African backs Andre Esterhuizen and Robert du Preez have both been suspended following dangerous tip-tackles during Saturday’s Sharks vs Stormers Super Rugby clash. Both were yellow carded, but citings and fairly lengthy bans have followed. ADVERTISEMENTBoth players were charged with contravening Law 10.4 (j), which applies to the lifting tackles that took place. Sharks centre Esterhuizen and Stormers fullback Du Preez both pleaded guilty to the charges.Esterhuizen was suspended from all forms of rugby for four weeks, while Du Preez received a six week ban. In the latter’s case, it was viewed as a mid-range offence, with two weeks added on as a deterrent to ‘send a further message that this type of tackle cannot be tolerated in the game due to the risk it poses to players.’It was then reduced due to mitigating circumstances such as remorse and a clean record.In Esterhuizen’s case, which was similar to the Francois Steyn incident earlier this season, judicial officer Nigel Hampton stated: “It appeared from the video that the actions of the Sharks’ halfback had some effect on the Stormers’ player as he came to ground on his upper body. However, Esterhuizen was clearly the major contributor to this dangerous tackle, which he accepted.”Nature of Offence: Law 10.4 (j) Lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground whilst that player’s feet are still off the ground such that the player’s head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground is dangerous play.Esterhuizen tackle on Michael Rhodes Du Preez tackle on Lwazi MvovoADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 7 WEEKS AGO Another red card for striking leaves Andre… 7 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Pure head-loss from Rebels star leads… 7 WEEKS AGO Brutal breakdown stamping in 2003 shows just… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
