EPIC and Whysup ‘continue to make real change’ with partnership renewal

It has been an absolute pleasure working with them over the last year and they have added huge value to what we are doing in the education and awareness section of our business.”Extending the agreement, EPIC praised Mark Murray, Director of Whysup, for his contributions to the education and awareness sessions.Foster continued: “Mark has brought energy, enthusiasm and expertise to the sessions and the feedback has been nothing short of brilliant.“It is not often that you can work with an organisation that shares similar values and objectives and this is just the start of a really special partnership. Gambling and mental health are intrinsically linked, and this will be a major focus for us in all that we do over the next 12 months across all sectors.“Backing UKGC National Strategy principles, EPIC and Whysup work will focus on education, raising awareness, research and providing practical guidance to all stakeholders combatting gambling harm.”Murray added: “We are delighted to be renewing our collaborative partnership with EPIC Risk Management. Working with Paul, Patrick and the wider EPIC team over the last 12 months has been fantastic. We are like-minded people who want to deliver the best possible awareness sessions to aid prevention.“This is what pro-active, positive collaboration looks like and together we will educate more young people with what we believe to be potentially life-saving information. I believe this is just the start and over the next 12 months we will continue to provide a much-needed service, ensure that young people are aware of the risks, and deliver a real-world gambling education.” Share ‘Pent-up demand’ for live sports drives gambling pick-up in June August 17, 2020 Submit UKGC lifts Matchbook suspension August 12, 2020 UKGC outlines changes to society lotteries and LCCP conditions July 30, 2020 Sharelast_img read more

Arsenal to offer counseling to Granit Xhaka

first_imgArsenal will offer to counsel captain Granit Xhaka after his angry confrontation with home fans during Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.The Swiss midfielder was booed while he walked off the pitch, prompting him to cup his ear, walk past boss Unai Emery and storm down the tunnel.Emery said: “He is upset, devastated and very sad.“It is not only yesterday and today. He is feeling the supporters don’t like him.”The Gunners manager said he did not want to speak about whether Xhaka may lose the captaincy.“His behaviour was perfect in training [on Tuesday], with the group and with the club. He knows he was wrong. He feels it inside very deeply,” said Emery.Emery said Xhaka should apologize to fans, but added: “I don’t need his apology. Because I know he is devastated, we can speak about all the situation but first, it’s him.“He is now very down and we need to support him.“My ideal future is to watch again Xhaka playing and every supporter supporting him. I don’t know if I can or will achieve it but this is my ideal.“Also for him, it’s the same but also I think we need now to be calm step by step so we can progress.” Source: BBClast_img read more

The starting lineup and pole for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway, the second in a two-day doubleheader at the Tricky Triangle in Long Pond, Pa., were set by a different procedure than the random draw used to determined the starting lineup for Saturday’s race.The starting grid for Sunday’s race at Pocono, scheduled to start at 4 p.m. ET and broadcast live on FS1, features a pair of Chevys at the front of the field thanks to an inversion of the top 20 finishers from Saturday’s race.

‘He’s screwed now!’ Gattuso welcomes former Milan teammate Pirlo into Juve job

first_imgGennaro Gattuso warned Juventus head coach Andrea Pirlo that his illustrious playing career will count for little in his new job.Pirlo, who has not had a coaching job and only took over as Juve’s Under-23s boss last week, was handed the reins in Turin on Saturday in the wake of Maurizio Sarri’s dismissal. MORE: Messi always gives Barca a chanceSarri was sacked after just a single season in the job, after leading the Serie A champions to defeat to Lyon in their Champions League last-16 tie the previous evening.The former midfielder – who won four Serie A titles, one Coppa Italia and two Supercoppa Italiana during a four-year spell with Juve – has signed a two-year deal, and he is now gearing up for his first coaching job at one of the world’s biggest clubs.And Gattuso, who played alongside Pirlo at Milan and for Italy, provided an honest assessment of the job’s difficulties for his former team-mate.”Well he’s screwed now… That’s the job,” Gattuso told Sky Italia following Napoli’s defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League on Saturday.”He’s lucky to be starting at Juventus, but this profession is one where a great playing career is not enough.”You have to study, to work hard, and you don’t get much sleep.”OFFICIAL | Andrea Pirlo is the new coach of the First Team. https://t.co/riVxl1enbJ #CoachPirlo pic.twitter.com/pf9QRbJ6Ll— JuventusFC (#Stron9er ) (@juventusfcen) August 8, 2020Gattuso’s first job in coaching came at FC Sion, with the 42-year-old then having spells at Palermo, OFI Crete and Pisa before he took charge of Milan’s youth team in 2017. He was promoted to first-team head coach following Vincenzo Montella’s sacking later that year, though he was dismissed at the end of the 2018-19 campaign after a fifth-place finish, going on to replace Carlo Ancelotti at Napoli, who he guided to the Coppa Italia title this term.”Being a player and being a coach is really not the same thing at all,” Gattuso added.”It’s a totally different profession and we can’t learn it just from books, we need to get in there and work hard. It’s a different world.”last_img read more

LONGSHOT STREET MAVEN PULLS OFF GATE TO WIRE HEIST IN $58,000 SANTA ANITA ALLOWANCE FEATURE; BAZE, O’NEILL TEAM TO WIN AT 1 ¼ MILES ON TURF

first_img–30– ARCADIA, Calif. (April 2, 2015)–In a major departure from recent tactics, longshot Street Maven was gunned to the lead by Tyler Baze and he responded with a gate to wire triumph in Thursday’s $58,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita, winning by a length and a quarter while covering 1 ¼ miles on turf in 1:59.94.Trained by Doug O’Neill and off at 9-1 in a field of eight older horses, Street Maven, who broke slowly in his most recent start going 1 1/8 miles on turf and was some 15 lengths off the lead after the first quarter, paid $21.40, $8.00 and $4.60.“That was all Tyler today, putting him on the lead,” said O’Neill. “With the rails being out (30 feet), we thought he’d be more forwardly placed but to have him on the front end with the fractions they were going…we were cussing him mid-race, but we were lovin’ him at the wire.”Owned by R3 Racing and Calara Farms, Street Maven, a 5-year-old gelding by Street Hero, sailed through fractions of 22.88, 46.44, 1:10.85 and 1:34.98 en route to his third win from 10 career starts. With the winner’s share of $34,800, he increased his earnings to $93,670.“I was going fast the first quarter mile, but he was doing it so easy,” said Baze. “When they’re doing it that easy you can go that fast and get away with it. He’s a nice horse.”Although 8-5 favorite Wanstead Gardens made a big run through the lane with Victor Espinoza, he was unable to threaten the winner and paid $3.00 and $2.80.Crucero, who was off at 13-1 with Kent Desormeaux, checked in third and paid $4.80 to show.First post time on Friday at Santa Anita is at 1 p.m. Admission gates open at 11 a.m.last_img read more
