Racing Tip: Fahey Irish National Memories

Evidently that will have been the target for many, but for Lots Of Memories the Fairyhouse Easter shindig will have been his main aim.

The race has often been won by a novice or inexperienced chaser, Shutthefrontdoor and Organisedconfusion spring instantly to mind, and Lots Of Memories can continue that thread, as a handicap mark of 138 is very lenient for a horse beaten just 14 lengths by the 2016 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Don Poli!

But not before a brief stop in Fairyhouse for the Irish Grand National meeting over Easter, and Mullins’s will surely have many chances. But one race he will struggle to win is the showpiece Boylesports Irish Grand National itself – a race steeped in history, and won last year by long-time favourite for the this year’s Aintree version Shutthefrontdoor.

Lots Of Memories has had six chase starts and four of them in Graded races, where his record reads two thirds and two fourths, while sandwiched in between was a win and a second. At Leopardstown at Christmas he was beaten just 14 lengths by Don Poli in the Grade One Topaz Novice Chase. But while there is a smattering of English-trained entrants, the horse that has the most appealing profile for the race is neither from these shores nor trained by the Closutton master Mullins.

At 20/1 now, he is a must each-way bet, as he will surely be much shorter come the day.

Freshened up with two months off the track, he ran a great prep race at Naas two weeks ago, at a time when most of the current market principals where running at the Cheltenham festival.

It is a race that has been known to have gone back across the Irish Sea as Jonjo O’Neill, Ferdy Murphy, Bob Buckler and Martin Pipe have all won it in the last 25 years. Since that he has also finished third to Wounded Warrior in a Grade Two.

Lots Of Memories, is trained in County Kildare by Paul Fahey, and is currently a 20/1 shot with bet365 and makes great appeal as an ante-post bet.

A convincing winner of a 3m handicap hurdle at the meeting last year, his debut chasing campaign has more than smacked of being prepared for the spring festivals at Fairyhouse and Punchestown (where he was a 2½l third to Beat That in a Grade One 3m novice hurdle last year.)

Recommendation:

Irish Grand National (Fairyhouse) – Mon 6th April

Lots Of Memories (each-way) – 20/1 (bet365)

Having swept into Cheltenham earlier this month with a battalion of horses ripe and ready for their assignments, Willie Mullins will no doubt be looking to reap more rewards for his patient spring festival-focussed approach to the season, as the bandwagon rolls on to Aintree next month.

Online Gambling Trends And Predictions – A Comprehensive New Report By Pwc

Lastly, forging ties with social networks have become a trend among casino owners as they recognize its valuable contribution to market presence and revenue growth.

4. The recent economic recession has had negative repercussions on casino owners in Nevada and Atlantic City. It is worthy to mention that we have chosen contents relevant to this site and have summarized these alongside some of our inputs (Readers who wish to get a glimpse of the report details may visit http://www.pwc.com/gx/en/entertainment-media/pdf/pwc-playing-to-win.pdf.

Casino Revenue Figures – Actual and Estimates

Recession and US Casinos

By: Rick A

3. Sports-betting has likewise become a big industry in the US.

1. We have gone one step ahead by digesting selected sections of the report and summarizing them for you. Final Note

Everyone knows that Asia is being touted as the next global champion, thus it didn’t come as a surprise when PwC reported that the Asia Pacific Region industry players, specifically Macau, has already surpassed Nevada’s casino revenues in 2008. As a precautionary measure, the New Jersey government is reportedly preparing to submit an Online Gambling Bill which would help casinos outside of Atlantic City to obtain operating licenses.

A few years ago, the UIGEA Bill was passed to control illegal online gambling although there are entities pushing for its repeal. The Powerball multistate lottery in the US and selected provinces in Canada are gearing towards creating a poker network. The Social Network Bandwagon. Probably for lack of reliable and credible sources, revenue figures from online gambling were excluded from the PwC report. Government and Taxation

Asia Pacific Region – Gaining Headway

Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC), one of the giants among accountancy firms worldwide has recently published a report on “Global Casino and Online Gaming Market to 2014″. Casino owners, especially those operating within smaller states or regions would find ways to broaden its customer reach. The saying “Different folks, different strokes” strongly applies.

People have different perspectives about gambling. While this site focuses on online casinos, a discussion on land-based casinos cannot be ignored at this point considering its huge operations and strong influence on its online counterpart. Of course we cannot discount the role of the general public in shaping the future of casinos worldwide. The first part contains discussions on land-based casinos while the second touches on online casinos. Apparently, crossing borders would be inevitable as business owners try to provide its local customers with as many players to play against.

Like any other business or going concern, casinos are also taxed by the Government. His casino blog provides insider information about online casino and what players need to know.

2. We can go on discussing a host of other forms of gambling and the public’s different views on these. On-line gambling in France for instance has blamed the French Government for its poor performance due to regulations and taxes. As expected, revenues took a nosedive. The company however came out with revenue figures derived from regulated online gambling. Singapore is not to be left behind as it occupied the number three slot among the regions revenue contributor for the same year.

We will continue to keep track of interesting news and issues pertaining to online gaming laws and regulations so do follow us regularly on twitter @rCasinoReviews or simply subscribe to our RSS feed.

In the US, casino owners are experiencing a less than favorable output. In the US, horse racing has evolved into a legal activity in various states. Apparently, more and more casino business owners recognize the value of social utilities and their huge contribution to increasing customer base and revenues. Below is a brief discussion of these directions including our views.

Article Directory: http://www.articledashboard.com

Many might be wondering whether a deal could possibly be forged between the popular social network Facebook and Harrahs. Poker for instance is viewed as game of strategy and entails analytical skills from among its players. Understandably, Government would want higher revenue from taxes however, it may be wise to temper its imposition of taxes (including regulations) if it wants the industry to thrive. The bottom line is each form of gambling draws varied reactions from multiple sectors of society. Cross-Border Gambling

Rick is an industry veteran offering views and insights into the online casino world. Too much imposition of taxes and stringent regulations may kill the industry. PwC reports that for 2009 alone, revenue derived from gambling worldwide was a whopping US$100.5 billion. This lengthy but must-read report discusses the land-based and online casino industry including players, trends, and revenue growth, to name a few. Gaming businesses in UK also experienced the same heavy imposition of taxes. Deal or no deal, social networks are bound to take on a major role in promoting online casinos. For this reason, a premier gambling business in UK has decided to pull-out and relocate its head office offshore.

Shifts and Directions

PwC’s report came out in two parts. It is interesting to note that apart from Harrahs, other online casino businesses have expressed growing interest in joining the social networking bandwagon. Societal Views and Values

PwC also reported major directions to be taken by online casinos within a four-year time frame. Whether or not it is ready to embrace gambling as a legitimate source of entertainment for mature and responsible adults still remains to be seen. The company further estimates that this will reach US$156.8 billion or a hefty 56 percentage points increase by year-end 2014.

Overall, it seems that growth of online casinos (including land-based ones) will be greatly influenced by Government’s laws and regulations on casinos and strategies on achieving revenue growth in the coming years. On the other hand, table games in casinos are often times viewed as merely a game of chance and is unlikely to gain widespread acceptance compared with poker games. Casino owners were not spared of the crisis. One proof is the growing number of Zynga poker fans who play poker for free via Facebook.

The practice of keeping casino operations within territories or states are backed up by their respective governments however, this set up may not gain a strong foot hold in the coming years. Asia Pacific countries like Australia and South Korea have become major players as they accounted for 92% of the region’s casino revenues for 2008

2015 NCAA tourney betting guide

15 North Dakota St. Cyclones vs. 13 Eastern Washington Eagles

No. Bison. That worked out well for me, but this year I’m hoping to be able to back Iowa State on a deeper run with Georges Niang Co. 2 Gonzaga Bulldogs vs. But except for Lawrence Alexander, NDSU is far inferior to the team that nearly made the Sweet 16 last year, and frankly, it wouldn’t be in the field if it hadn’t won the Summit Conference tournament. 1 Duke Blue Devils vs. I don’t see any potential matchup where I’ll be fading them, starting with the opener, as UAB needed the home court to win the Conference USA tournament as the fourth seed to earn its dance ticket.

To be added after the North Florida-Robert Morris “First Four” game on Wednesday in Dayton, Ohio.

Tuley: Gonzaga is hardly even considered a mid-major anymore; instead, it’s the poster child for programs like North Dakota State, which upset Oklahoma last year in the Seattle subregional. No. 4 Georgetown Hoyas vs. No. This is the best and most balanced Gonzaga team yet, playing in its backyard, so I can’t get on the NDSU bandwagon.

Westgate line: Iowa St. But fear not: ESPN’s Chalk college basketball betting experts are here to help. ATS pick: Iowa St. 14 UAB Blazers

With more than 9.2 quintillion possible NCAA tournament brackets, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. No. -12

Rihanna Goes with Blackface for New Video; Also Imitates Slash (VIDEO)

The symbolism is, er, somewhat hard to decipher …

The singer’s album Rated R hasn’t quite been the blockbuster that everyone thought it would be, coming off the Chris Brown abuse, the high profile collaborations with Jay-Z, and the general interest in seeing her become the new queen of RB divas. How to remedy that? Evidently by employing (ironically, one presumes) blackface.

The tune itself isn’t much to brag about, but it does feature former Guns N’Roses guitarist Slash — and so R manages to work in a visual impersonation of the top-hatted axe-slinger as well.

Oh, and she’s also now got a harp on her behind. but then, so was releasing “Russian Roulette” as the album’s first single.

Performing in blackface has been out of favor for, oh, 50 years or so, but that hasn’t stopped Rihanna from doing just that for her new music video, “Rockstar 101,” as seen below.

Anyways, it’s certainly one of the stranger vids to come down the pike in awhile:

Rio Ferdinand’s online gambling endorsement deal slammed as foul play by fans

Gambling rips families apart.”

Casino Floor UK’s site also includes a range of simple video games, based on fairy tales and cartoons, which look as if they are aimed at children.

Another read: “Haven’t enough money without promoting gambling? Grim.”

The former Arsenal captain, a recovering alcoholic, said his clinic now deals with more gambling cases than any other form of addiction among players.

A link to the site followed.

But he faced a backlash on the social networking site as fans branded him irresponsible and money-grabbing.

The FA alterations also ban bets on any football matter, including transfers, employment of managers and team ­selections – all of which carry odds on the casino site that is now being endorsed by Ferdinand.

The QPR and ex-England star is the new face of a site that lets users bet on sports fixtures and virtual casino games.

Rules changed last year to bar players from betting on fixtures worldwide.

One response read: “An absolute ­disgrace Rio that you are plugging this gambling rubbish. Footballer Rio Ferdinand has caused ­outrage by endorsing gambling in an advertising deal.

Another blasted: “You have responsibilities as a role model. Shame on you.”

The law bars under 18s from gambling – but Twitter’s minimum age limit is 13 and dad-of-three Ferdinand has not added the optional “adult content” alert to his page since his endorsement deal began.

One tweet said: “Scamming your young followers with gambling?”

Fears the Premier League star is influencing kids to become interested in casinos were raised.

Still playing: Rio Ferdinand of QPR

He tweeted to his six million followers on Wednesday: “Play at my favourite @CasinoFloorUK tonight have 55 free spins on me.”

Ferdinand and the FA declined to comment.

The defender, 36, was paid £200,000 a week at the height of his career with Manchester United and still earns £80,000 with his new club – but a string of players have been financially ruined by gambling.

But he turned things around thanks to the Sporting Chance clinic set up by ex-England defender Tony Adams, 48, to help footballers who fall prey to addiction.

Former West Ham and Stoke winger Matthew Etherington, 33, blew more than £1.5million on poker and racing.

Ex-Liverpool and Scotland star Dominic Matteo, 40, who admitted losing £1million on horse racing, called gambling addiction “an epidemic in English football”.

Beautiful Callaway FT Irons Review

The grips are just right with extra traction. Callaway FT Irons are thought to be Fusion Technology irons that appeal to mid to low handicap players. Discount Golf Clubs For Sale This has been achieved by moving 80% of the club head’s weight to the perimeter for outstanding forgiveness. Beautiful clubs. The new head shape will appeal to more mid-to low-handicap players.

When I first saw the FT Iron clubs I was impressed by the design and work quality. Then a thinner top line and a higher toe these golf clubs have a much more traditional look without losing any forgiveness. The end of the shaft is tip-plugged at the bottom of the hosel to reduce vibration upon impact. Eighty percent of the clubhead’s weight is positioned in the extreme perimeter for a higher MOI and enhanced stability and forgiveness.

Golfers have their choice of graphite, steel, or Dynalite shafts. The FT irons are an evolution of the original Fusion irons, the Callaway FT Irons deliver the utmost in performance and playability. Next I will take more feeling after I used it.

The FT Irons are Callaway’s 2008 line of technologically advanced golf clubs.

The look of the Callaway FT Irons is more standard, but the set includes many technological inventions. Multi-material construction allows for premium performance and the Tunite cradle has been optimized with the addition of Extreme Notch Weighting. The FT Irons incorporate tunite alloy into the perimeter of the club, which is a metal that is denser than stainless steel or titanium.. Accuracy also slightly improved. The Tunite Cradle, made of a high-density proprietary alloy, plus Lightweight Hot Titanium Face and TPU SenSert cavity-back insert combine to create a powerful, forgiving and solid feeling iron.

When compared with most other clubs, these Callaway FT Irons are narrower at the top, longer in the blade, and weighted slightly more in the toe and heel, which produces a well designed, strong lofted club. Along with very little vibration, the titanium face gives a soft, yet solid, feel at impact as well. 

These irons feature a new head shape which has a thin top line and higher toe together with less offset. Slightly oversized head design added more weight and oomph to my swing

How English football cashed in on the rise of betting

You could, in theory, kick-off every time and, if that happens, it becomes ridiculously easy to bet on which team will win the first throw in.

When I first started playing, I was simply too young and too naive to realize what was going on. Let me give you an indication of just how easy it was to manipulate the system back then …

Read: The Secret Footballer reveals life inside the EPL

As I say, I was a young man who could barely find my way to the training ground. Again, this is all exposed through real-time alerts and reports.. I just thought that the full back who was clipping the ball down the line and out of play was s*** and there was no helping him. The internet was just taking off and the algorithms used to detect fraudulent gambling were nowhere near as sophisticated as they are now. I also had aspirations of playing at the very highest level so anything that seemed even remotely “iffy” just wasn’t for me.

Bookmakers now go to extreme lengths to prevent spot fixing in sport

Interestingly, almost every online bookmaker is extending the capabilities of these reports and alerts in order to make their software and, by extension their operators, more “clever”.

There are reports that show the customers who repeatedly bet on the same outcome — win, lose, draw, etc. Sometimes, however, like me, the wood is very much masked by the trees and what seems like the right career move ends up having terrible consequences for the people that you love the most.

“In play” betting was a relatively new thing in those days. At the start of every game, you are involved in the toss of a coin to determine which team has the kick off and which end you are going to kick towards. Now, imagine what would happen if, as the captain, you went in to each of these tosses with the sole intention of making sure that your team got the kick off. There is no prize on earth that would have ever made that gamble worthwhile, especially in football.

There is a gambler in all of us, like it or not.

So, we know no team is interested in winning the toss to get the kick off. These customers are then pooled together into “liability groups” that are monitored closely so that any betting pattern that changes is immediately flagged up on the system.

But it is not because they are falling victim to increasing numbers of betting rings and scams, it is because their users are mushrooming at an alarming rate.

It didn’t take the bookies long to catch on and, these days, the levels of detection are as scary as they are effective. I have no idea how much money was made but it would probably have been the equivalent to a player’s full weekly wage.

Let’s say that you are the captain of the team. In the research I did for this article, I consulted a friend of mine who works for a leading online betting site to see what measures have been put in place since the early days of internet gambling.

Even so, regularly kick-offs that started a game led to the ball being played to a full-back who in turn would shank it out of play. It was only years later that I found out what had been going on.

Read: Down the rabbit hole – depression in the EPL

Yet, as with all vices, there will be those who are unable to recognize and control the pitfalls.

The main tool is recognizing the repeat customers and their betting patterns.

It turns out that they do not have anything specific to track irregular betting patterns but, instead, rely on a combination of tools that help their “operator traders” decide whether a bet is fraudulent or not.

Very often, the biggest gamble in life comes in the working environment — deciding when to stick and when to twist, when to realise that our own contentedness is determined not by the material things that we surround ourselves with but by the things that money can’t buy, such as family.

The traders look for sudden upshifts in betting and on particular selections.

My biggest gamble was to move my family hundreds of miles from their support network and, with hardly any warning, plunge them into a totally alien environment.

The operator traders monitor such behavior through “live alerts” that are set up to detect irregular bets in real time.

A tell-tale sign that a bet may have sinister undertones is when a user places the maximum amount allowed in one bet. No team wants to win the toss so that they can have the kick off; an away team only wants to win the toss so that they can choose which end to kick towards — so the home team does not have the advantage of kicking towards their home fans in the second half.

The impact that decision had on us as a family was immediate and only resolved itself a few years later after a gargantuan effort on our part to get things back to the way they had once been.

Gambling has been big business since Moses wore short trousers and, in these times of austerity and economic hardship, it is no great surprise that many people are once again turning to the vices that give them a modicum of pleasure at the minimum of cost.

I want to go on record as saying I had nothing to do with this.

I gambled all the good things that I had in my life for a little bit more of the things that I had always been taught to strive for but which, in reality, mattered least of all

Farewell Don Zimmer: Remembering an old school baseball man

He proved correct when Cecil Fielder and Junior Griffey homered the next day and we won the remaining games.

Don Zimmer was one of my favorite baseball friends and his death the other day at 83 leaves a hole at shortstop on my team of “good guys.” That was his position on the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers when I first heard of him. 

I enjoyed his company while he was the Manager of the Chicago Cubs. He was just what he seemed to be. He served as the Commissioner of Baseball from 1989-92.

That trip drew us close. These are the real baseball lifers and they are there at the ball park every day for years.

By Fay Vincent

He was the quintessential baseball lifer. He was proud that the only paychecks he ever received came from a baseball team. 

They were not violating baseball rules because they did not bet on baseball but my concern was they did not realize their bookie was also a drug dealer whose drug activities drew the FBI attention.

I also remember him as an original Met in 1962. He was not particularly well known and his death may go unnoticed except by those of us who knew and liked him. As commissioner, I regularly spent time with the groundskeepers, office workers, ticket takers, field security people and umpires. stars played a series against the finest players from that baseball devout nation.

He did not look like a ball player. He was like the professional actor who was always on stage but rarely had a major role.

A lifetime as a player, coach and manager made Zimmer part of our baseball institution. My experiences with him ranged from the sublime to the difficult.

I knew him as a solid old school baseball man who realized his good fortune was to get up every day to go the ball park where he could pretend to be at work.

I was also worried these baseball people might become in debt to the bad guys and run the risk of being corrupted in order to make good on their obligations.

When I called Zimmer into my office my intention was to warn him of the risks he was running and to direct him to stop his betting. After the 1991 season, he was the manager of a MLB all-star team that I accompanied as commissioner to Japan where our U.S. He was so frightened he immediately promised to comply with my orders, and years later his wonderful wife, Zoot, told me how grateful she was to me for their quiet Sunday afternoons each fall when Zim could now enjoy the NFL games without screaming at the TV set.

We lost the first few games and I began to worry about being swept, but Zim reminded me our fellows were beginning to get used to the Japanese pitching style. He was an old baseball hand with few pretensions and a strong sense of place. He was short and squat with a melon face that looked like he had a chaw in both cheeks all the time. 1, 2010: Tampa Bay Rays special adviser Don Zimmer looks on during a baseball game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Toronto Blue Jays in St. His smile was genuine and he found fun everywhere. He was so directly honest it is difficult to imagine who might have disliked him. Few fans are even aware these people are involved in the presentation of the games. Don Zimmer, a popular fixture in professional baseball for 66 years as a manager, player, coach and executive died on June 4, 2014. He managed for 13 seasons without winning a pennant, and is best known as Joe Torre’s bench coach when the Yankees won four World Series championships.

FILE – Sept. Unlike many of us, he knew what he did not know. And he disproves the old Leo Durocher line that “nice guys finish last.” I salute my friend Don Zimmer who seemed to enjoy being nice.

I knew Zimmer as a solid, old school baseball man who realized his good fortune was to get up every day to go the ball park where he could pretend to be at work.

My most vivid memory of our dealings occurred when the FBI alerted me to some off-season gambling by Zim and several others, including two umpires, who used a local bartender in Tampa to place bets on basketball and football games.
