It is all about breaking through language barriers to enable more effective engagement with a global fan base.eyecandylab (USA)With eyecandylab’s mobile augmented reality (AR) technology, fans could enjoy live games with an interactive AR layer. By pointing their smartphone or tablet towards live action shown on TV, fans would be able to access stats, player profiles and 3D green layouts in an interactive and visually enhancing way. They could also engage with life-size holograms to bring the action from the course into their living room.Sparx Technology (Canada)The idea is a consumer engagement platform for enhancing broadcast streams. It would allow for real-time audience engagement through on-screen polling, trivia, predictive gaming, sports wagering and data collection. The Sparx platform would integrate directly with the live broadcast graphics system to connect viewers to the action happening on screen, creating a two-way communication channel between the broadcaster and viewers.Now, these three businesses will work with the Tour’s business development team, venture capital (VC) firms and Tata Communications, looking at ways to turn their solutions from concept into reality. After this, they will go through a Dragon’s Den-style pitch where the ultimate winner will be chosen. Finally, the winner will develop their application with the European Tour for it be tested in action at a leading European Tour event during the 2020 season, states the Press release.“We are delighted with the response to our Innovation Hub contest which demonstrates the strong relationship that exists between golf, technology and innovation,” said Michael Cole, CTO, European Tour. “The three shortlisted ideas caught our imagination because the businesses behind them understand the tremendous potential to enhance the game and the Tour for our increasingly mobile, digitally-savvy audiences worldwide. We look forward to working with these three businesses to develop their ideas further.”“Digital platforms have the power to transform golf for the benefit of the sport’s entire ecosystem, including European Tour’s commercial partners and broadcasters,” said Mehul Kapadia, Global Head of Marketing, Tata Communications. “We look forward to harnessing our expertise in the digital transformation of global sports to explore with the three shortlisted businesses how they could not only take the golf fan experience to the next level, but also identify untapped operational efficiencies or revenue streams for the European Tour ecosystem.”The panel of judges includes Michael Cole and Mehul Kapadia, as well as Rufus Hack, European Tour’s Chief Content Officer, and Tri Pham, Tata Communications’ Chief Strategy Officer. They are joined by Oliver Wilson, a professional golfer, winner of 2014 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and a Ryder Cup player.Tata Communications is the Official Global Connectivity Supplier of the European Tour, and this competition builds on previous collaboration between the two organizations to drive innovation in golf.

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Moneysupermarket.Com Group (LSE:MONY) shares are falling, but I think it has many elements of a value stock for a long-term portfolio. Along with its links to strong brands, it offers a decent dividend yield and may be considered a cheap UK share. But does it have what it takes to withstand the pandemic?Share price rise and fallAfter rising 59% from a low of £2.19 in the March stock market crash, to a high above £3.50 in June, the Moneysupermarket share price has fallen back over 28%. This is because the pandemic is ravaging its income streams and making trouble for the group.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…The key purpose of Moneysupermarket is to entice customers with knockdown offers to get them to switch utility and insurance suppliers to save money. This earns the company a commission. Unfortunately, revenue for the first three quarters of the year is down 11% compared to the year-ago period. The FTSE 250 company blames a fall in the energy price cap and a rise in wholesale energy costs. Both of these created a reduction in potential customer savings, discouraging them from switching supplier. Some 19% fewer households switched energy provider this September than in September 2019. Meanwhile in moneylending, banks brought in stricter credit scoring, which also discouraged customers from shopping around.The company saw an increase in motor insurance, but demand in other insurance channels, such as banking and travel, is weakening.This disappointing trading update led analysts to cut their forecasts for the short term. Although some remain bullish on the long-term forecast.Can this UK share ride out Covid-19The pandemic is undoubtedly the catalyst, so things should rapidly improve once that’s been dealt with. This means as a prospective long-term investment, I think these next few months could prove a good time to purchase shares in Moneysupermarket. It’s a business trusted by patrons and has proven itself a leader in providing consumers a simple way to make savings when shopping for the best deal. That’s why I see it as a value stock for long-term investment. It’s previously invested heavily in its technology, improving its digital experience and site functionality. I’d expect this to pay off in the future. The most appealing aspect of this share for a long-term portfolio is its dividend. It hasn’t been cut during the pandemic and is covered at 1.5 times earnings per share (EPS). The dividend yield is around 4.6% today, it has a price-to-earnings ratio of 14 and EPS is 17.7p.Strong leadershipPeter Duffy is the new CEO, and he comes from FTSE 100 group Just Eat. Prior to that he worked at easyJet and Audi UK. So he has considerable experience in working with public companies and driving growth.So what’s Duffy’s view of the current situation? “Our markets continue to be impacted by Covid-19, which is affecting our current performance,” he said. “However, the group benefits from strong brands and high levels of cash conversion, so we are well positioned to weather this period of economic uncertainty and deliver future growth.“As I’m building a long-term portfolio with a long-term investment goal, I want to choose shares to buy in companies that are still going to be here in the future. My plan is to buy and hold for at least five to 10 years. So, I need to feel confident in the company before parting with cash. Moneysupermarket is a UK share I’d consider buying. I think this cheap UK share is a great value stock for a long-term investment See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay

The exterior garden is located on southern elevation; it was planned as an extension of the interior space of the living room. The northern elevation was designed as a patio that acts as outdoor foyer between the house and the street. Furthermore, the patio functions as a translucent “light well” which attracts reflected northern sunlight during the day.Save this picture!SectionThe Houses ground floor plan layout was conceived as an “open plan”. The plan assembles most of all the public activities of the house: living room, a reading corner, dining area, and kitchen. The design intention was to diffuse the boundaries of the functions in order to create a visual transparency between these areas. The glass elevation on the ground floor was intended to be a dynamic partition allowing a long perspective through the house spaces.Save this picture!© Neve TzedekOn the interior, the design is influenced by a strong sense of modern French and Italian furniture. Warm and soft colors and fabrics were chosen to contradict the main element in the interior of the house the steel library and stairs. This black steel element of the stairs and library has a framing quality within the interior space, it frames all interior views towards the exterior space.Save this picture!© Neve TzedekIn the lower part of the house, the basement serves as an audio and entertainment room which was planned adjacent to the patio. The upper floors hold all the bedroom suites. In these rooms, terraces were designed to view the southern garden. The architect’s initial plan was to search for an architectural language which combines local references and contemporary Mediterranean elements. These local elements such as a patio, terraces, and garden are redefined with a modern interpretation.

(Case study continuation of Raval Hideaway Barcelona).Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© José HeviaIn this case, the owner acquired a 92sqm former motorcycle repair shop that had been long closed in the frontier of Palma de Mallorca’s old quarter. The space had generous free heights, a non used courtyard and was built in traditional mares stone (mallorcan limestone).Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!© José HeviaAs the existing groundfloor access door created a very violent connection between the road and the studio, it was essential to integrate an intermediate buffer garden area. This garden buffer area serves as a way to get light inside and also act as an acoustic and privacy barrier from the street. This new courtyard is created by having two opposing layers of facade. First, an exterior light-permeable perforated iron sheet folding door that can be totally opened and gives a gradient of visual privacy to the apartment. And second, a glass and wood frame window structure that shuts down direct noise from across the road. The space between these two skins can be totally o partially opened, with a large number of variations to suit every need. A wood built-in bench and built-in tiled planters complete the setup ideal for a transitional calming entry ritual where lush plants merge with tiled walls bringing back a Mediterranean courtyard welcome.Save this picture!© José HeviaOnce inside, the proposal generates around a single new diagonal partition that serves as a room divider, storage space and a visual directional guider towards the back exterior space. This single wood partition serves as an aid for all main activities of the dwelling and also creates an acoustic barrier between them.Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!© José HeviaThe left side of the partition is reserved for the bedroom and closet area. This space is elevated a few steps to create a sense of coziness and eye height barrier to the new entrance courtyard. The elevated areas consist of the more domestic ones such as study, bedroom, closets and bathroom. In the bathroom the elevated height is used to go down a few steps making an inbuilt shower/bath for hedonist living.Save this picture!© José HeviaThe right side of the partition is reserved for the common areas. Flooring of polished concrete remain continuous throughout the dwelling to create a sense of amplitude. A central kitchen work island is placed in the middle of the space encouraging central gathering. This table is co-designed and produced by local Mallorca young designers and brings a touch of color and freshness to the more mínimalistic shell.Save this picture!© José HeviaThe living room and dining area are placed at the wider opening close to the back garden.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Charities must understand the difference between marketing and administrative telephone calls, according to the Institute of Fundraising’s updated Telephone Fundraising Code of Practice.Administrative calls must not be made with the specific purpose of soliciting a donation or sale and marketing calls should not be made under the guise of administration. However, supporters marketing preferences can be verified during a genuine administrative call.If a donor has supplied their telephone number as part of the details they are happy for the fundraising organisation to hold, it would be reasonable to assume the donor would not object being called unless they have indicated otherwise.Chief executive of the Fundraising Standards Board, Alistair McLean said: “The large majority of telephone fundraising is conducted to a very high standard and public complaints constitute less than 0.1% of the volume of activity in this area. And yet it remains the second most common source of complaints.”Natalie Bailey, client services director at NTT Fundraising said the code was “still open to quite a lot of interpretation” over the relationship between the charity and donor, but that the update would not make a great deal of difference to the way agencies currently act. “We already abide by the regulations,” she said. “As long as agencies and charities are speaking to donors in the right way it is a good thing and clarifying the process and best practice can only help.”www.institute-of-fundraising.org.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis 36 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 26 April 2010 | News Tagged with: Individual giving Institute of Fundraising Law / policy Telephone fundraising
People in solidarity with Bolivarian Venezuela held a lunchtime picket at the Council of the Americas in New York City on May 17 to protest a scheduled talk by Organization of American States General Secretary Luis Almagro, a stooge of the U.S. counterrevolutionary campaign against that country.Protesters took over the sidewalk in front of the Upper East Side mansion housing the Council of the Americas. They chanted, “¡Almagro, asesino!” (“Almagro, murderer!”) “¡Maduro, amigo! ¡El pueblo está contigo!” ([President Nicolás] “Maduro, friend! The people are with yo u!”) and “USA, hands off Venezuela!”The OAS head cancelled his appearance, apparently afraid of being confronted by Chavistas and supporters, and the picketers declared a victory.Protesters then decided to march to the Venezuelan Consulate several blocks away to show their solidarity with the Venezuelan government. Solidarity activists saw for themselves the actions of right-wing gangsters, who had defaced the consulate with counterrevolutionary slogans and blood thrown on the building. Venezuelan government officials came out of the consulate to greet the demonstrators and thank them for their solidarity.The action was called by the Alberto Lovera Bolivarian Circle and endorsed by the International Action Center, Workers World Party, Cuba Solidarity New York, Alianza PAIS, Libre Resistencia Hondureña, Pastors for Peace, Answer Coalition, International Concerned Family & Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal, and Cuba and Venezuela Solidarity Committee.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The President, who is the Visitor to the University, has also directed an inquiry against him over allegations of dereliction of duty and lack of commitment. The order comes days after Tyagi removed pro-vice-chancellor PC Joshi and appointed Dr Geeta Bhatt, Director, Non- Collegiate Women’s Education Board, in his place. Significantly, Joshi had already appointed Vikas Gupta as the new registrar during this time. However, Tyagi appointed PC Jha as the Acting Registrar. The order issued by the Higher Education Department of the Ministry of Education states that Tyagi tried to hamper the smooth conduct of Executive Council Meeting and Selection Committee Meeting by making “parallel appointments”. The President has now set aside all orders issued with the approval of Prof. Tyagi during period of his absence on medical ground after Pro Vice Chancellor Joshi assumed the charge of VC on 17th July, 2020. The order further discloses that during Tyagi’s tenure as the VC, many statutory and key posts remained vacant in spite of regular follow up by the Ministry. The Ministry has also stated that Tyagi acted “insensitively” by keeping vigilance complaints and sexual harassment cases in the University pending for more than two years. As per the order, the post of Pro-Vice Chancellor was lying vacant since June, 2016 until June 2020 and the post of Registrar was vacant since March, 2020 till mid-October 2020. Similarly, the office of Finance Officer and Treasurer has been vacant since March 2020 and that of the Controller of Examination has remained vacant for the last 6 years. Further, important positions like that of Dean of Colleges; Director, South Campus; and Principals in Colleges are being managed by temporary arrangements. In fact, there has also been a delay in constitution of the Governing Bodies of the colleges, resulting in unsavoury situations on many occasions. The Ministry has stated that despite several requests to fill up the teaching posts in a time bound manner, the process to fill the vacancies has been delayed. “Though timelines were drawn up by the University but only a few posts were filled up on regular basis. Thereafter despite continued pursuance from the Ministry and also from the UGC o fill the teaching posts in a time bound manner, the process to fill up the vacancy is way behind the schedule. Parliamentary Committee on welfare of SC/ST in its meeting held on 20.10.2020 expressed displeasure over non-filling of a large number of backlog vacancies in SC/ST category,” the order states. It is intimated that Prof. PC Joshi, Pro-VC will function as the VC, as per the provisions of statutes of DU, during the period of suspension/absence of Prof. Tyagi.
